Mr McKinnon, pictured in 2009, had his extradition to the U.S. blocked in October (PA)

 

Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer QC announced the decision, some three months after McKinnon, 46, was saved from extradition to the U.S.

 

British computer hacker Gary McKinnon will not face criminal charges in the UK, the Crown Prosecution Service announced today.

 

Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer QC announced the decision, some three months after McKinnon, 46, was saved from extradition to the U.S.

 

In October, Home Secretary Theresa May had decided not to extradite McKinnon to America on the basis of his health.

 

The CPS said today that consulting with the police and relevant authorities, they recommended to the Met Police that recommended to the Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police that they ‘should not commence a new criminal investigation into Mr McKinnon’.

 

They added that the Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police ‘has accepted that advice’.

Mr McKinnon, 46, from Wood Green, north London, would have faced up to 60 years in prison if convicted in the US.

McKinnon’s mother, Janis Sharp, has long campaigned for her son’s rights (PA)

 

In their statement issued this afternoon, the CPS said that in light of the logistics of prosecuting Mr McKinnon, ‘the propsects of a conviction against him… were not high’.

 

They added: “The potential difficulties in bringing a case in England and Wales now should not be underestimated, not least the passage of time, the logistics of transferring sensitive evidence prepared for a court in the US to London for trial, the participation of US Government witnesses in the trial and the need to fully comply with the duties of disclosure imposed on the CPS.”

 

Mr McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, was permitted to stay in the UK after medical reports showed he was very likely to try to kill himself if extradited.

 

Both Prime Minister David Cameron, who held talks on the case with US president Barack Obama, and his deputy, Nick Clegg, had condemned plans to send him to the US.
