The McKinnon Extradition - BBC Radio Hacker Drama
----------------------------------------------------------

John Fletcher's play tells the true story of Gary McKinnon, a British citizen who is fighting extradition to the US on suspicion of hacking

into government computers - first broadcast 12/12/2007

"McKinnon extradition drama turned into radio play:-

The plight of accused Pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon has become the subject of a radio play due to air on the UK's Radio 4 on

Wednesday afternoon.The play, due to air at 2.15pm will tell the story of McKinnon's fight against extradition to the US.

McKinnon is fighting against extradition to the US on hacking offences after losing an appeal in April. Only the Law Lords now stand

between the Scot and a US trial for allegedly breaking into and damaging 97 US government computers between 2001 and 2002 and

causing an estimated $700,000 worth of damage, in what US authorities have described as the "biggest military" computer hack ever.

The former sys admin admits he gained unauthorised access to military networks - using a Perl script to search for default passwords -

but describes himself as a bumbling amateur motivated by curiosity about evidence of UFOs, rather than a cyberterrorist. McKinnon

and his legal team have consistently argued that he ought to be tried in the UK.

The Law Lords agreed to hear arguments that US authorities acted in an "oppressive" and "arbitrary" manner during plea bargaining

negotiations, for example, by allegedly threatening McKinnon over the loss of rights to serve part of his sentence in the UK unless he

submitted to voluntary extradition. No date for the hearing has been set as yet."

Sunday Express: David Gilmour pays for Gary McKinnon's psychiatric treatment
Sunday February 13,2011
By James Murray

PINK FLOYD star David Gilmour is paying for psychiatric treatment for troubled Gary McKinnon after he was suddenly refused NHS funding while he fights extradition to the US on charges of hacking into military computers.

The renowned guitarist, who supports mental health campaigns, decided to step in after the Asperger's Syndrome sufferer became a victim of budget cutbacks at a London NHS Trust.

Glasgow-born McKinnon, 45, faces up to 60 years in a US jail for breaking into Nasa and Pentagon computers in 2001 and 2002 while looking for evidence of UFOs. Until last month he had been receiving treatment from Asperger's expert Professor Jeremy Turk, who believes he will become a suicide risk if forced to go to America to face trial.

The intervention comes at a crucial time for Mr McKinnon. His mother, Janis Sharp, is preparing to disclose new evidence of mental illness in the family that could be used to stop the case against her son. Speaking to the Sunday Express, Ms Sharp praised the Pink Floyd star for his help, and insisted their fight against extradition would continue.

She said: "When I heard about the funding for Gary's psychiatrist being refused I was shell-shocked.

"The world economy is worse than people realise and people in this country are going to be hit by the cuts that haven't even fully kicked in yet. What will happen to other people with psychiatric problems if their funding is cut off?

"I'm so grateful to David Gilmour for helping Gary at such a crucial time."
