London, June 24 (CNA) The High Court of Justiciary in Scotland decided Wednesday
to examine conditions at Taiwan’s prisons before issuing its ruling on the extradition a British citizen, who was given a prison sentence in Taiwan.
A court session will be held in September to rule on the appeal that was filed by Zain Dean, a British citizen convicted of killing a Taiwanese man in a drunk driving accident in March 2010.
The court’s decision to examine conditions in Taiwan’s prisons implies that there will be no decision in the case any time soon, an attorney representing Taiwan said Wednesday.
Dean fled Taiwan in August 2012, using a friend’s passport, after he was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison. [FULL STORY]
