Submission + - MacKinnon extradition blocked->

RockDoctor writes: BBC radio news (2012-10-16 GMT 13:00) is reporting that the Home Secretary has blocked the extradition of Gary MacKinnon to the US for (alleged) computer hacking crimes.

(paraphrasing) the Director of Public Prosecutions is going to have to decide if there is sufficient evidence for him to be tried in the UK for crimes committed in (or from) the UK.
