After extradition proceedings of 6 years, Alun Jones secured the release of Nosratollah Tajik, a former Iranian ambassador to Jordan, accused in the USA of conspiring to export night vision goggles from the USA to Iran. The High Court discharged him on 27 November 2012 on the ground of unreasonable delay by the USA and Home Office. Mr Tajik is the only Muslim to defeat a US extradition request for terrorist or political offences since the Extradition Act 2003 came into force.
