CPS Change Rules 3 Weeks After Extraditing Muslims
“So long as appropriate charges can properly be brought which reflect the seriousness and extent of the offending supported by admissible evidence, a prosecution should ordinarily be brought in the jurisdiction where most of the criminality or most of the loss or harm occurred."
This is part of the new guidelines introduced by the Crown Prosecution Services for extradition cases. It was introduced on 25th October 2012, less than 3 weeks after the CPS said it could not intervene with the extradition of two Muslim men to the US, Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan.
This is not a slap in the face of every Muslim in the UK. This is GBH. So let’s get this straight. Babar Ahmad was jailed without trial for 8 years, physically abused by the police, then extradited to the US, while another white non-Muslim was blocked from extradition by the home secretary, on the grounds that he (Gary Mckinnon) was autistic, although Talha Ahsan suffered from the exact same condition; and now the CPS have amended the guidelines so that, “A prosecution should ordinarily be brought in the jurisdiction where most of the criminality or most of the loss or harm occurred," conveniently 3 weeks after our brothers were extradited.
Why were these guidelines not introduced 3 weeks ago when Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan were extradited to the US? The sad truth is that the repugnant stench of Islamophobia has seeped deep into the foundations of the British government institution. It is deemed perfectly acceptable to extradite two Muslim men, while blocking the extradition of a non-Muslim and then changing the rules afterwards.
The recent events have made it clear that there is one rule for British citizens, and another for British Muslim citizens. A more extreme form of this prejudice was implemented by Nazi Germany against the Jews. So what are we waiting for? When will Muslims wake up and realise that we have now become second class citizens?
