Revoke the UK's extradition treaty with India with immediate effect
We are alarmed by the number of extradition requests to India that have been approved by the UK Home Office. We believe that human lives are in effect being sacrificed for trade deals.
It has been reported that the Foreign Secretary has said that restricting trade because of human rights abuses would mean missing out on “growth markets”.
As trade and political relations with the Indian state deepen, we urge the UK Government to confirm its obligation to its citizens and the ECHR Articles, upholding and prioritising human rights over trade deals, by revoking the extradition treaty with India.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
