NGO calls for UK-UAE extradition to be suspended

Detained in Dubai, a UK-based NGO, has called for the UK’s extradition treaty with the UAE to be suspended following several UK court rulings blocking extradition to the UAE on the grounds that there was a “real likelihood of human rights violations”. Extradition from the UK to the UAE was first refused on this basis in  Lodhi v Secretary of State [2010] EWHC 567 (Admin). The UK Courts have ruled against all subsequent extradition requests from the UAE.
