Home Office insists on legality of extradition as man appears in court accused of double murders in Bradford

THE Home Office last night insisted that a Bradford man's extradition from Pakistan to face double murder charges was fully legal.
Mohammed Zubair had appealed against being sent back to the UK and was still waiting for a decision before he was put on a plane and returned, his solicitor Shahzad Ali told magistrates yesterday.
Zubair, 36, appeared before Bradford and Keighley Magistrates' Court charged with the joint murders of Imran Khan 27, and Ahmedin Sayed Khyel, 35, whose badly beaten bodies were found at the side of a country lane in New Lane, Tong, in May 2011.
Zubiar has been in custody in Pakistan since November 2013 and his extradition is the first in more than a decade from that country to the UK.
But Mr Ali told magistrates: "There was an appeal pending in Pakistan before the crown court. The decision had not been announced by that court as to his return so I'm not prepared to concede his return to this country was legal.
"I want it noted on the record."
After the hearing a West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Any matter regarding the legality of the process is a matter for the courts to decide."
And a Home Office spokesman insisted: "The request for Mr Zubair was subject to full judicial process before the Pakistan courts."
