In my book there is a raft of issues arising from this article, including the apparent inequalities vis-a-vis extradition treaties between the UK and the US, the possibility that the US is using anti-terrorist agreements for other purposes and the evident subservience of the UK government to the US authorities. These are interesting matters but beyond the scope of this post. My question specifically concerns the following issue.
No problem so far.
Since there is no tax liability in the UK for internet gambling operators, thus their conduct is not illegal in the UK, why is there little prospect of success for these people when arguing against extradition?
(I have noted the subsequent comment in the article by the Matrix Chambers spokesman but I don’t understand the context.)
