Gary McKinnon's mother Janis Sharp praises Home Secretary Theresa May for her "incredibly brave decision" in blocking the extradition of her son to the US on human rights grounds.Mr McKinnon is accused by US prosecutors of "the biggest military computer hack of all time", but he claims he was simply looking for evidence of UFOs. Theresa May told MPs there was evidence that the 46-year-old, who suffers from Asperger syndrome, would try to kill himself if forced to stand trial in the US and therefore extraditing him breached his human rights.Get the latest headlines http://www.telegraph.co.uk/Subscribe to The Telegraph http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=telegraphtvLike us on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/telegraph.co.ukFollow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/telegraphFollow us on Google+ https://plus.google.com/102891355072777008500/Telegraph.co.uk and YouTube.com/TelegraphTV are websites of The Daily Telegraph, the UK's best-selling quality daily newspaper providing news and analysis on UK and world events, business, sport, lifestyle and culture.
