A desicion is due shortly on whether the U.K will extradite a citizen who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome to the United States for hacking into U.S military computers when he says he was looking for UFO evidence.

The case has been going on for 10 years already and Gary McKinnon would face up to 60 years in prison in the States but British health officials say he will almost certainly commit suicide if he is extradited.

It is a matter of fact that an autistic lad looking for UFO's online may accidently discover a unique talent for hacking but lacking knowledge enabling him to truly understanding the gravitas of his actions or wrong-doings.

Theresa May has the power to block the move if she feels McKinnon is a suicide risk. Mr McKinnon's case has also been highlighted by many critics who say it is too easy for the US to demand the handover of U.K citizens and want the government to look at procedure again.

The Daily Mail has said that Home Secretary Theresa May will introduce new rules that would make it more likely British citizens would be tried in the U.K if it is deemed that the alleged crimes took place here.

The BBC's website says - "Mr McKinnon's lawyer, Karen Todner, said she had been calling for such a move for years.

She told the BBC: 'It would be absolutely fantastic if she does bring that in - but she must combine it with not sending Gary'."

UPDATE - 12:33PM

It is being reported that the Home Secretary Theresa May is about to announce Gary McKinnon will not be extradited to the United States.

The Home Secretary said McKinnon is accused of "serious crimes" but is very ill, after careful consideration Theresa May has decided that extradition would put his life in danger and has "therefore blocked the extradition".

British courts will now be able to bar British citizens' trials taking place abroad in the "interests of justice".
