Although an individual who suffered from Asperger Syndrome would be likely to suffer a serious deterioration in his mental health if he was extradited to the United States on charges of computer hacking, his case did not approach the severity required to infringe the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.3 and the secretary of state was entitled to order his extradition.
