Ben Cooper to represent Lauri Love at meeting of Parliamentarians seeking extradition overturn

11.10.16 | |


Ben Cooper will attend a meeting at the Palace of Westminster this evening to represent his vulnerable client Lauri Love who is challenging three extradition requests from the USA, where he faces prosecutions in New Jersey, New York and Virginia for alleged cyber crimes. Ben will set out for a cross-party group of MPs, the legal background to the case, and explain how the relatively untested extradition forum bar is working in Mr Love’s case, and what legal options remain for him.  


Others, including the National Autistic Society, Liberty, and The Courage Foundation, will discuss issues such as the difficulties faced by those with various forms of autism when they come in to contact with the justice system.  


A number of MPs support Mr Love’s campaign to have his extradition order overturned on health grounds, and they plan to seek wider support from Parliamentarians to petition President Barack Obama to overturn the USA’s extradition request before he leaves office in January 2017. 


On Wednesday 12 October 2016, in the House of Commons during the Prime Ministers Question's, David Burrowes MP raised the case of Lauri Love - watch the BBC coverage.


Further information on the meeting can be found in the media from outlets such as the Evening Standard.


Ben is instructed in Mr Love's case by Karen Todner of Kaim Todner solicitors.
