Experts have concluded that it is likely McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, will commit suicide if extradited to the U.S. But as the Welwyn Hatfield Times recently reported, at McKinnon’s last court appearance on July 5, ministers, including Home Secretary Theresa May, want a new medical report before a ruling is made. May cited a personal concern that McKinnon had not been examined by a Home Office-appointed medical assessor. London’s High Court gave McKinnon two weeks to decide if he will take a medical test “to determine if he is fit to be extradited.”
McKinnon has reportedly refused the medical test.
His mother, Janis Sharp, told BBC Three Counties Radio, “It is not a refusal, he had no choice – it is an impossibility because the assessment they want him to have is by someone who has no experience and wouldn’t be able to diagnose his suicide risk.” Three leading Asperger’s experts already concluded that McKinnon “was at extreme risk of suicide if extradited,” and that he is “unfit for trial.”
Sharp told the BBC, “I’m sure that Theresa May will do what’s right, and make a just and compassionate decision now and allow Gary to begin to regain some of the life he has lost.”
The case returns to London’s High Court on Tuesday, July 24.
