Kevin Halligen Extradition Appeal

Post  interested on Wed 22 Feb - 17:51

I believe the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear the extradition appeal on February 21, 2012. Any news would be appreciated. Thanks.

Madeleine McCann detective loses appeal against extradition

Jun 22 2011

Comments (2)

A BUSINESSMAN whose firm helped look for Madeleine McCann has failed in a last ditch High Court bid to escape extradition over an alleged £1.3m fraud.

Kevin Halligen is now set to stand trial in the US accused of defrauding a London law firm.

It is claimed he took the money to secure the release of Dutch business executives arrested in the Ivory Coast but instead spent it on a mansion.

The 49-year-oldís company, Oakley International, was employed in 2008 by Allerton-born Kate and Gerry McCann to find their three-year-old daughter, who disappeared in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007.

But after six months, his contract was cancelled by the Find Madeleine Fund after he delivered little to the investigation.

Halligen, whose firm was based in Washington, was arrested in 2009 after months spent evading police.

He was found staying at the plush Old Bank hotel in Oxfordshire, where he was known under a number of aliases.

As far as I know his case started yesterday in court 2 of the Supreme Court. It is scheduled for 1.5 days so should be over & probably awaiting the judges decision.

I am finding it interesting that the UK media aren't sharing this as we have know about it for weeks. There was a day when every sneeze 100 miles away from the McCanns was reported.

The Assange appeal hearing was at the beginning of Feb and no judgement has yet been delivered so it is unlikely there will be any news for a while.

Thanks to gillyspot for the up-date. I should have known it would take time for the decision. I've been 'surfing' the U.K. press but have not been able to come up with anything. Agree there was a time when this matter would be reported on in anticipation of the result. Thanks again, I'm sure the good people on this blog will keep those of us so far away up-dated. This could be an important decision, in my opinion.

It is a case of watching & waiting with this.

What is of interest to me is despite other extradition cases being shared in media, this one has had no coverage - that is despite my trying to share it with them. Blank stares. - Not hard to see why TBH. Whichever media outlet shares that Halligen is being extradited for fraiud will not be allowed to share the rest of McCann "sightings" - Go K & G hit em in the pocket - Who cares about Madeleine - I do :(

Not sure this has been shared before but Halligen has won his appeal & now goes back to High Court

From his solicitors

"Carter Moore were today a party to a landmark ruling on extradition proceedings in the Supreme Court. In the case of R v Kevin Halligen, Carter Moore successfully argued that Article 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights applies to extradition proceedings and our client was thus denied a fair trial by the High Courtís refusal to accept an appeal lodged a day late by his previous solicitors.

Mr Halligenís case will now be referred back to the High Court where we will argue substantive grounds of appeal against the order for his extradition to the United States."
