WPC Yvonne Fletcher was 25 years old when she was gunned down outside the Libyan Embassy at 10:18am on the 17th of April 1984 whilst carrying out her duty.
On the 10th of September 2009 it was revealed that a deal, approved by the then Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, that the Governemnt had agreed to abandon any attempt to seek the return of WPC Fletcher's killer for a trial on British soil.
A petition has been set up in an attempt to bring her killer back the U.K to face trial for her murder. Below is the contents of a message brought to my attention. The link for the petition is included at the bottom of this post.
"You may have seen on the National news that the UK Government has given up seeking extradition for the killer of Wpc Yvonne Fletcher.
