Gary Mulgrew is the stepson* of Dr Norman Godman who was MP for Greenock and Inverclyde (and its earlier incarnations) between 1983 and 2001. His mother is Trish Godman, MSP for West Renfrewhire since 1999 and a deputy presiding officer at Holyrood.
She is quoted by the BBC as saying:
* Not the son, as I originally suggested.
"The treaty under which my son was extradited is one-sided, unjust, ignores the principles of due process and is a licence to breach the rights of British citizens"...
"I also have grave concerns over the way ministers and most Labour MPs dealt with their case before they went to America."
