The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the extradition of Abu Hamza and other terror suspects to the US does not breach their Human Rights. It was submitted to the court that the "supermax" prisons that the prisoners would be housed in had conditions which would constitute a breach of their human rights.
The US-UK Extradition Treaty has facilitated the transfer of these suspects. The treaty has come under scrutiny over the last year due to a number of high profile extraditions to the United States.
It is believed that there may be a further appeal by the terror suspects but the decisions thus far have indicated that the court will not rule in their favour. This will be an important decision in determining the view Strasbourg takes on certain prison conditions.
