Dear Mr Moore,

Thank you for your e-mails of 19 January and 29 February about the extradition case of Kevin Halligen.

Mr Halligen's appeal was heard at the Supreme Court on 21- 22 February 2012 and judgment was reserved. The Court has not yet set a date for judgment to be handed down.

In cases such as this, where the appeal relates to whether the rules regarding the lodging and serving of appeal papers were complied with, the person would not be automatically discharged from extradition proceedings were the Supreme Court to rule in his/her favour. However, he/she would be able to pursue their appeal against their extradition in the High Court.

In general terms, under the Extradition Act 2003, if a person's appeal is dismissed by the Supreme Court, they must be extradited with 28 days. There is no further right of appeal under UK law.

Yours Sincerely

Gemma Kelly
Extradition Section

I wonder why the judgement was reserved? Why not make a decision? IMO this 'review' started with Halligen telling what he knew, maybe he can't be extradited because enquiries are ongoing in a crime he may have committed in this country.

It'll be interesting to see what happens to Halligen when the met has finished it's review.

Reserved judgements by the Supreme Court are the norm so nothing unusual in that. Looking through recent case judgements some were delivered as soon as 3 or 4 weeks but sometimes months after the hearing.

Halligen has been languiishing in a British Jail for nearly two years now and there must be a reason why he has not been extradited before now
because the case against him in the U.S. is very strong. I hope Scotland Yard questioned him about the money supposedly paid to him by the McCanns,
but think he might be kept in the U.K. because of the £1 million supposedly paid to his Company Oakley for "investment " by a U.K. Lawyer on behalf of
a U.K. Businessman.
