30 Sep COURT OF APPEAL ATHENS TURNS DOWN EXTRADITION REQUEST FROM THE UK
Posted at 13:12h in News
In a much noted decision of 6.9.2019 the Court of Appeal Athens sitting as a first instance court rejected a UK European Arrest Warrant against a well-known Greek businessman on charges of fraud against Barclays and false financial statements in relation to companies traded in London’s Alternative Investment Market. His extradition was sought by the Financial Conduct Authority.
The Court held that the EAW shall be rejected on prescription and territoriality grounds.
Ilias Anagnostopoulos and Jerina Zapanti advised and represented the businessman throughout the extradition proceedings.
