Taipei, July 10 (CNA) The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) said Friday that it will keep trying
to have the British citizen Zain Taj Dean extradited to Taiwan to serve a jail sentence for a hit-and-run accident that killed a newspaper delivery man.
The ministry reiterated its determination for the extradition after a local newspaper reported on Friday that the British government has proposed allowing the time Dean has been detained in the United Kingdom to count toward his sentence in Taiwan.
The ministry declined to confirm whether or not there was such a proposal, but an MOJ official, who refused to be named, disclosed that in theory, the idea can be carried out. [FULL STORY]
