Self-confessed hacker Gary McKinnon will return to court in May to hear whether the home secretary was right to allow his extradition to the US to face charges of hacking US federal and military computers.

McKinnon, who was first arrested in 2002, has admitted to hacking thousands of Pentagon computers in search of material on unidentified flying objects he believed the US military was hiding.

If convicted in the US, Mckinnon faces up to 70 years in jail. If tried and found guilty in the UK he might serve a much shorter term. McKinnon has said he is content to be tried in the UK, but fears being treated as a terrorist if tried and convicted in the US.

McKinnon’s legal team has argued, so far unsuccessfully, against extradition in every court available to it in the UK and Europe. The latest hearing stems from a High Court decision to review whether the home secretary fully considered evidence that McKinnon suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, an autistic condition.

McKinnon, who has suffered deteriorating mental health as the legal process has gone on, is said to be suicidal.

His cause has been taken up by a number of celebrities and MPs, at least one of whom quit parliament over the allegedly one-sided extradition treaty between the US and UK.
