Terror suspect Babar Ahmad faces possible private trial

originally by: BBC News
published: 6 September 2012

A British businessman has told the BBC he wants to bring a private prosecution against two UK terrorism suspects. Karl Watkin said he wanted to prosecute Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan, rather than them face extradition to the US.

Mr Ahmad has been detained without trial for a record eight years. The US accuse him and Mr Ahsan of running a major jihadist website. The men are understood to have confirmed involvement in the UK website – but have not admitted offences.

Mr Ahmad and Mr Ahsan are accused of involvement in Azzam.com, a website and publishing business which between 1996 and 2002 was at the heart of the radicalisation of English-speaking Muslims.

Although the website was based and operated from London, it was technically hosted in the US.

Neither of the suspects has been charged with an offence in the UK relating to Azzam, despite the fact that the investigation by US authorities includes evidence seized by the Metropolitan Police.

    Heard Babar’s father speak tonight about this, they are asking everyone to write to the Department of Public Prosecutions to request that there is a trial here, so that Babar and his co-defendants do not face a life of solitary, in a high max prison, the in States.
