Petition launched to stop extradition to the UAE
An online petition has been launched to stop the extradition of UK citizens to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in light of the growing extradition requests from the Gulf country.
The petition calls on UK authorities to suspend or withdraw from the extradition treaty with the UAE until the UAE can uphold human rights.
No Briton has been extradited from the UK to the UAE since 2010, but growing extradition requests from the UAE incur millions of pounds in costs for the UK taxpayer, the petition says.
