BBC Bailed Greek prison Scot Conor Howard regrets buying joke gift
'Extradition abuse' - 25 September 2020
Radha Stirling, of campaign group Detained in Dubai, represents the family and believes Mr Howard should never have been jailed in the first place.
She said: "At the whim of a country notorious for Interpol and extradition abuse, a European country has been used as a conduit to unfairly detain a British national.
"Qatar has been responsible for a number of arrests and detentions inside the EU over the past 24 months. In none of these cases were the victims extradited and in all cases I have dealt with, the victims were released and removed from Interpol's database."
She said that Greece has allowed Qatar until 4 November to present further evidence, meaning Mr Howard is not allowed to return to Scotland and still risks being extradited.

The post added: “Robert has been an amazingly strong person and a pleasure for me to work with. I am sure he will recover well and I will keep you posted. In the mean time, please keep the Howard family in your thoughts.”
