Responding to the Home Secretary's decision not to extradite Gary McKinnon, Mark Lever, Chief Executive of The National Autistic Society, said:
“We're delighted that the years of waiting are finally over for Gary and his family.
“Janis' relentless campaigning for her son and Gary's stoicism in the face of some testing circumstances have been truly inspiring.
“People with Asperger Syndrome can be vulnerable and the NAS argued long and hard for the Home Secretary to take Gary's condition and its associated challenges into account when making this decision.
“A decade is a long time to wait, and those years can never be recovered but Mrs May's decision has finally put an end to a difficult chapter.”
