Mckinnon Refused Permission To Appeal

October 9, 2009

Computer hacker Gary McKinnon has been refused permission to appeal to the UK Supreme Court against his extradition to the US.

The Glasgow-born 43-year-old is accused by the US of the breaking into its military computer system but he insists he was just seeking evidence of UFOs.

The Asperger’s Syndrome sufferer, of Wood Green, London, could face 60 years or more in a US prison if convicted.

In July, he lost a High Court bid to avoid extradition.
