"There is an ongoing problem with people with autism in the justice system - they have actually been debating it in Westminster Hall. I hope this sets a precedent for the future for anyone in the same position that they will be tried here".

Love was indicted in three separate American federal district courts, effectively giving prosecutors three attempts to find him guilty. "What makes Great Britain great is that we live in a place with wisdom and compassion".

The cross-party group of parliamentarians, including digital minister Matt Hancock, Love's constituency MP, called for the 32-year-old to face trial in the UK.

Love has been facing computer hacking charges filed in the US since 2013, when US authorities accused him of hacking and stealing data from the networks of the FBI, the US Army, NASA, the US Federal Reserve, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other government agencies.

But Mr Love, who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, argued he'd be a suicide risk if he was moved to the USA and should face the charges here instead.

He has also been diagnosed with a depressive illness.

"Mr Fitzgerald QC for Mr Love was at pains to emphasise that Mr Love did not seek impunity for the acts alleged against him, but contended that he should be tried and, if convicted, sentenced in the United Kingdom", said the judges today in their written ruling. In October 2016, a Magistrate's Court ruled that Love could be extradited to the United States, and a month later, UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd signed Love's extradition order. He is released on bail.

"I am absolutely thrilled for Lauri, his family, friends, his legal team and all the supporters who have worked so hard to bring us to this point".

"But we are satisfied, in the particular combination of circumstances here, that it would be oppressive to extradite Mr Love".

In their ruling, the High Court judges raised the possibility that Love could be put on trial in England, saying that that wouldn't be considered "oppressive" and that he would be much less of a suicide risk if imprisoned in England because he would be close to his family and loves ones.

District Judge Tempia's order sent the decision on Love's fate to the then UK Home Secretary, Theresa May, now prime minister, who insisted the Brit bloke should have been sent overseas.

"This is especially important in cases of vulnerable people like Lauri Love", she said.

That issue, of course, is whether the extradition and U.S. court process would have a serious impact on his physical and mental health.

Its statement said: "This has been a landmark judgment, not just because it is the first time that the Forum Bar has successfully been argued, but also because it is a very rare occasion on which the English courts have discharged a requested person on a United States extradition request".
