Talha Ahsan and Babar Ahmed were among those imprisoned without trial under the US-UK Extradition Act 2003 for six and eight years respectively, for alleged crimes committed in the UK. Whilst under arrest, Babar was subjected to torture by the Metropolitan Police. The four officers charged with the assault were acquitted, and no apology made despite the Police admitting full liability.
