To Withdraw from the Extradition Treaty with the United States

We call on parliament to immediately withdraw from the current Extradition Treaty with the United States until the following conditions are met:

-Equality in terms of strength of evidence with regards extradition of US citizens to the UK and from UK citizens to the US
-No extradition for crimes not commited on American soil
-The standard of evidence must be high enough for the Crown Prosecution Service to make a charge in the UK for extradition to take place.
-The standards of prisoner treatment and sentencing meets the standards of the UK Human Rights Act.
