The spat between Richard Desmond and the hedge fund firm Pentagon Capital continues, and very much not in favour of the media baron. Desmond fell out with Pentagon last year, after some of the company's funds were frozen and it was unable to return an investment of his. Desmond has now had to publish a humiliating apology to Pentagon in the Sunday Express. After the row began, the paper, which Desmond owns, published a series of accusations about the honesty of Pentagon and its senior staff. Now the paper has admitted the allegations were untrue and – embarrassingly – that the article was based on comments made by Desmond himself. Damages have also been paid.

It is only right that friendly nations should co-operate to send their nationals abroad for trial if they have committed a serious crime in a foreign country. But transferring one's citizens to a foreign jurisdiction should never be done casually. And the merit of the arguments put forward by the foreign state needs to be rigorously tested. The case of Gary McKinnon, who is due to be extradited to the US, accused of hacking into the Pentagon from his home in north London, raises serious doubts about whether those requirements have been satisfied in this instance.
