Customer Question

Extradition The person in question is a UK citizen. He has been indicted by a US court in his absence. He has had one extradition hearing which has been postponed. He is currently being held on remand in the UK pending the next hearing. He is also the subject of a new unrelated investigation by the UK authorities. Given that he is also being investigated for a separate UK offence, what is the likely outcome of the next extradition hearing? Will the extradition be postponed whilst the UK investigation is carried out. And are reporting restrictions usual in such a case (fraud)

My name is Eli and I am one of JustAnswer's attorneys. I'll be helping you resolve your matter today.

May I ask the charge? State or federal?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.



It is federal charge.

Reporting restrictions are usual if the person is believed to be part of something larger, or they have yet caught the rest of the persons involved.

UK will likely try him first if he gets indicted in UK, and only then be allowed to go to US. UK is very jealous of extraditions and seldom plays ball if they can charge the person on the island beforehand.

I got 2 answers (both from Eli) to the same question. I accepted the first answer & emailed Justanswer to explain the error but as yet have had no reply.


please advise

I'll close this question out since it was a mirror of the other one and will ask customer service not to charge you.
