Richard O'Dwyer strikes deal to avoid US extradition

A student facing trial and possible imprisonment in the United States has struck a deal to avoid extradition, the High Court has been told.

>

The US authorities claimed the 24-year-old's TVShack website hosted links to pirated films and TV programmes.

The High Court was told Mr O'Dwyer had signed a "deferred prosecution" agreement which would require him paying a small sum of compensation.

Mr O'Dwyer will travel to the US voluntarily in the next few weeks for the deal to be formally ratified, it is understood.

1. Great news.

It seems those ridiculous extraditions from the UK to the US have been decreasing more and more.

... until he gets back OK ...

This government (nor its predecessors for many years) really doesn't give a toss about the rights of UK citizens
if the US decides that it wants them for yet another case of exceptionalism "justice" ...
