The Home Secretary is proposing to decide in mid-October whether to order computer hacker Gary McKinnon's extradition to the US
Computer hacker Gary McKinnon has refused to be examined by a Home Office expert attempting to discover whether he can be extradited.
The case of computer hacker Gary McKinnon has been adjourned to see if he is willing to submit to a final psychiatric examination.
The case of computer hacker Gary McKinnon returns to the High Court today.
The hearing follows his refusal last week to undergo further medical tests by a Home Office-appointed expert as he fights extradition to the United States.
The US authorities want McKinnon, from Wood Green, north London, to face trial for hacking into military computers 10 years ago.
A spokeswoman for the family of Gary McKinnon said they would return to the High Court on Tuesday as they await another a decision from the Home Office on his extradition. They claim that Professor Thomas Fahy who has been appointed to examine McKinnon does not have the correct expertise.
McKinnon's supporters say he will be a suicide risk if he is extradited and the Home Office already has evidence from other experts who have examined him.
The mother of computer hacker Gary McKinnon has said he has refused to undergo a medical examination from an expert appointed by the Home Office. McKinnon is fighting against extradition to the US on charges of computer hacking.
He was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and is claiming that it would be harmful to extradite him. The Home Office has been attempting to examine him to discover whether he can be tried abroad.
Newspaper publisher, News international, has confirmed that the man arrested this morning by officers from the Met's computer hacking operation worked for The Sun.
Officers from the Met's Operation Tuleta have arrested a man from North London in connection with alleged computer hacking. The operation was set up in the wake of the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World.
The former Home Office minister David Mellor has told the Leveson Inquiry that the Met Police investigations into phone hacking had been an "abject" failure. He criticised three former senior officers, Sir Paul Stephenson, John Yates and Andy Hayman, for not looking into the accusations properly.
Mr Mellor also praised the newspapers that had helped to expose the scandal, saying, "They opened a Pandora's Box the politicians and the police had been determined to keep shut."
Detectives investigating allegations of voice-mail hacking have bailed a 42 year old woman who was arrested on suspicion of 'money-laundering' offences.
She attended a South West London police station, by appointment, earlier today.
She was questioned by officers from Operation Weeting, Scotland Yard's phone-hacking investigation.
The woman was bailed until July.
