Talha should be home in mid-August. He is still detained (since 16 July when his freedom was declared) in USA immigration custody until then, awaiting deportation home.

Gary McKinnon, the London-based computer hacker who won a decade-long battle against extradition to the US in 2012, has been cautioned by his lawyers against visiting Scotland because he may still be extradited from there. McKinnon wants to visit his seriously ill father in Glasgow but has been told that, because Scotland has a different legal system to England, the US authorities could make a fresh bid to extradite him once he was there. His legal team have advised him that, because May's decision applies only in England and Wales, the US could attempt to extradite him," says Janis Sharp, McKinnon's mother, who led the fight to keep her son from being extradited.

This is absolutely outrageous.

Theresa May, go away!

On that auspicious July day.
Judge Janet Hall granted Talha his freedom in the USA.
The prosecutor's case was vague and grey.
Allegations of links to Al Qaeda were blown away.
Talha is now free to return to the UK.
But in immigration custody he must stay.
Much to his family's dismay.
What is the reason behind such a long delay?
Does Theresa May have to give permission before it's OK?
At the 2012 Tory conference didn't she say:
Wasn't it great to say goodbye - at long last - to Abu Hamza and those four other terror suspects on Friday?
Habeas Corpus and British sovereignty did she betray.
Outsourcing justice to the USA.
The mainstream media confused their cases to lead the public astray.
No evidence of terrorism could the Government display.
Now, Talha Ahsan's supporters say:
Wouldn't it be great to say goodbye to Theresa May?
This extradition case throws her political career into disarray.
With immediate effect, resign your post as Home Secretary and go away!

There's a deafening silence from the NAS about Talha's release and it has been mentioned on the discussion forum on their website. I'm certainly wondering what Mark Lever thinks of it all.

Fantastic poem BTW. The talents that kids with AS can have are amazing.

I'm not surprised. The NAS is not interested in people like Talha Ahsan because he won't bring in the taxpayer's money or the media coverage that their senior officers crave. I have wondered if the NAS wouldn't have given Gary McKinnon half the support he received if the Daily Mail didn't back his campaign. My cynical view is that NAS senior officers realised that publicity for Gary McKinnon = publicity for the NAS which is why they chose to make him their poster child despite much controversy and reservations from the rank and file members. I doubt that Mark Lever has thought about the outcome of the Talha Ahsan case, or is even aware of what has happened, because it has received very little coverage in the British mainstream media.

The NAS doesn't support home educated kids either. Any ideas on how teachers would react to such a poem if a 10 year old had written it at primary school?
