Liberty to take part in NatWest Enron case

Human Rights group Liberty to argue that NatWest Enron suspects should be prosecuted in the UK 

Liberty, the human rights group, has stepped into the row over the NatWest
three, who are facing extradition for Enron-related fraud issues.

The three are being seen as the first test of new fast-track extradition
procedures which threaten all those suspected in the US of white-collar crimes,
including accountants.

The NatWest three are due in the High Court next month to argue that they
should be investigated and prosecuted in the UK, not in the US.

Liberty said that it wanted to take part in High Court proceedings, intending
to argue that the state is under an obligation to prosecute in this country if
possible, under terms in the Human Rights Act.
