Lauri Love is interviewed on ABC’s Law Report this week, on the subject of extradition law and cases of Gary McKinnon, Lauri Love and Gary Davis, who is currently taking his appeal against US extradition through the Irish courts.
The programme explores the unusual nature of cybercrime cases for extradition law: the ability of countries like the US to claim concurrent jurisdiction and the often vulnerable nature of the defendants who get caught up in these cases. Noting the importance of the High Court’s ruling in Lauri’s case, Rowan Nicholson of Sydney University explains the likely impact for extradition in other countries.
I can see more and more of these cases. The US in particular is quite strict, quite firm – some might say harsh – in its efforts to prosecute and extradite individuals accused of these crimes.
Researchers at QUT and Deakin University have released a new study looking at three men in the UK and Ireland who faced extradition to the US over allegations of hacking and other online offences. These men are on the autism spectrum and have serious mental health issues.
One of the accused, Lauri Love, has become the first person in the UK to successfully fight an extradition request, based on an amendment to extradition laws known as the forum bar.
The Law Report on ABC RN focuses on the law-makers and the law-breakers, examining those who frame the laws and those who have to comply with them. Breaking legal stories across Australia and overseas, analysing law reform, legal education, test cases, miscarriages of justice and examining legal culture, the Law Report makes the law accessible to the inquiring listener, keeps lawyers informed of the broader trends, and also serves as an ideal educational tool.
