Case study - Andrew Symeou
« on: August 16, 2012, 04:19:10 PM »
Andrew Symeou is a British student who was extradited to Greece in 2009. He was accused of manslaughter following the tragic death of another young British man whilst he was on holiday in Greece. Evidence against him included statements given by two witnesses who say that Greek police officers pressured them to give false statements, which they retracted immediately after their release from police custody. Mr Symeou denied the charge and available evidence strongly indicated that he was innocent, yet a British Court never considered whether there was a prima facie case against him. Following his extradition Andrew spent over 10 months in appalling Greek prison conditions  In June 2011, Andrew Symeou was cleared of manslaughter by a Greek jury and returned home to the UK. 

If the crime is alleged to have occurred in whole or in part in the UK, then the person should not be extradited if a court here decides it is not in the interest of justice to extradite
