Press Release on behalf of Deborah Dark
The following is a Press Release by Kaim Todner Solicitors Ltd on behalf of Deborah Dark:
- We acted for our client Deborah Dark in extradition proceedings
brought by the Crown Prosecution Service pursuant to a European
Arrest Warrant issued by the Court of Appeal in Pau, France.
- After hearing her case, the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court
ordered our client's discharge in these proceedings on 6 April 2009.
- Our client had previously been discharged by a Spanish Court on 20
October 2008 in extradition proceedings in Madrid after having been
arrested in Alicante Airport under the same European Arrest Warrant.
- In light of the above two independent judicial decisions, it is a matter of
principle that our client ought to be able to travel free from fear of further
arrest under the same European Arrest Warrant.
- We are currently corresponding with the Home Office and will be in
contact with the French Embassy with respect to this matter.
