Liberty, the human rights campaign group have welcomed the proposed settlement of Richard O'Dwyer's case.
O'Dwyer, who is from Chesterfield, will voluntarily go to the US to pay compensation.
In light of this, Liberty have warned that there is still a need to reform extradition laws.
– Isabella Sankey, Liberty's director of policy
"Case after case shows that our extradition arrangements must be overhauled to allow people who have never left these shores to be dealt with here at home. We need urgent legislation to prevent their torment."
