London, Oct. 6 (CNA) A British court on Thursday released on bail a British citizen sentenced to a jail 201610060031t0001term in Taiwan for a hit-and-run accident that left a man dead.

Edinburgh Sheriff Court released Zain Dean on condition that his passport be held at the court.

On Sept. 23, the High Court of Justiciary in Scotland ruled that Dean, who had been detained since October 2013 after fleeing Taiwan in August 2012, should not be extradited to the island to serve his sentence.

The ruling overturned a previous finding by the Edinburgh Sheriff Court in June 2014 that Dean should be sent back to Taiwan to face justice.    [FULL  STORY]
