Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman today made an impassioned plea in the Commons to bring justice to a family - eight members of which were killed in an arson attack ten years ago.
Shahid Mohammed was arrested and bailed after the fire in Birkby in 2002 . It's believed he fled to Pakistan.
The fire killed three generations of the Chishti family. Three men were jailed in 2003 after a Leeds Crown Court trial.
Today, Mr Sheerman asked Andrew Lansley, Leader of the House of Commons, to look at the laws surrounding Pakistan and extradition.
The victims were Nafeesa Aziz and her five daughters - Tayyaba Batool, three; Rabiah Batool, 10; Ateeqa Nawaz, five; Aneesa Nawaz, two; and Najeeba Nawaz, six months.
Nafeesa Aziz's brother, Mohammed Ateeq-ur-Rehman, 18, also died and their mother, Zaib-un-Nisa, died a week later in hospital.
