ITALY v R (2013)

PUBLISHED November 28, 2013

[2013] EWHC 4063 (Admin)

A district judge had been wrong to grant conditional bail to a fugitive offender whose extradition was sought by the Italian government so that he could serve a seven-year sentence for an offence of being involved with the Mafia. The offender was a resourceful man who had lived undetected in the United Kingdom for a number of years and presented a flight risk.
