Richard O'Dwyer case: Extradition 'injustice' attacked


The director of human rights group Liberty has condemned the planned extradition to the US of a Sheffield university student accused of copyright infringement.

Shami Chakrabarti said Richard O'Dwyer, 23, and his family were "swept up in the injustice of instant extradition".

Home Secretary Theresa May approved Mr O'Dwyer's extradition on 13 March.

The US authorities say Mr O'Dwyer's TVShack website hosted links to pirated films and television programmes.
