Christopher Tappin, the British pensioner extradited to the US on charges of conspiring to supply weapons parts to Iran, has been denied bail by a Texan court.
For, by definition, if you\’ve been extradited then you\’ve had to be dragged into the jurisdiction of the court. So, obviously, you\’re more of a flight risk than someone who has not had to be dragged into the jurisdiction. And flight risk is the major point upon which the granting of bail or not depends.
There\’s not really a solution to this problem either…..
