Brit accused of spying on 772 people via webcam CCTV software tells court he’d end his life if extradited to US
Gareth Corfield reports:
A Briton is reportedly fighting extradition to the United States after deploying webcam malware onto hundreds of women’s laptops so he could spy on them undressing and having sex.
Christopher Taylor, a 57-year-old labourer, appeared by video link at Westminster Magistrates’ Court to contest an extradition attempt by the US government, according to the Court News UK newswire.
Taylor told District Judge Michael Fanning that both he and his wife would kill themselves if he was forcibly removed to the US.
