The wife of a retired British businessman extradited to the US for alleged arms dealing broke down in tears today as she spoke of her despair that nobody was prepared to listen to his defence before "carting him off".
Elaine Tappin said she could not believe her husband Christopher, 65, was not given the chance to put his side of the case before losing his two-year battle against being sent to America last week.
She was giving evidence to MPs in London as Tappin, who faces up to 35 years in jail if convicted of selling batteries for Iranian missiles, faced his first appearance in a US courtroom tonight.
