McKinnon's mum up for human rights gong

Shortlisted for 'Pentagon hacker' extradition fight

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Janis Sharp, the campaigning mum of alleged Pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon, has been shortlisted for a human rights award by Liberty.

The human rights charity recognised her efforts in battling for her son and against the Extradition Act; critics argue the law is one-sided.

"I’m incredibly honoured and hoping this will help Gary’s case further by bringing more attention to his plight and to the whitewash Extradition treaty review," Sharp said on Friday.

"I don’t know yet who else has been shortlisted or who votes for the award," she added.

The awards take place on Tuesday, 22 November at Purcell Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London.

The event will feature a special presentation to Kim Traavik, the Norwegian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, in honour of the victims of the Norway gun massacre in July and the "dignity and humanity of Norway’s response to that atrocity". ®
