UK Prime Minister David Cameron has stated that hacker Gary McKinnon would have to serve a jail sentence in Britain instead of being extradited to the US.
McKinnon, who is a patient of the Asperger's syndrome, was indicted by the US government for hacking into military and NASA computers. However McKinnon has voiced out that he was on a look out for information about UFOs.
Soon after a meeting with US president Barack Obama, Cameron proclaimed that McKinnon might serve his jail sentence in UK.
In a statement with BBC Radio 5 Live, Cameron said, "That is one potential outcome and I'll be working very hard to make sure that these things are discussed between the two governments”.
Cameron adds that he doesn’t want to make any prediction as presently there are a number of issues which needs to be dealt with at first hand.
McKinnon's lawyer, Karen Todner, stated: “We're very pleased that David Cameron has raised this and had a face-to-face discussion about Gary. Obama has used the term appropriate solution, and the appropriate solution is that he stands trial in the UK.”
