Scotland authorities agree extradition of Zain Dean to Taiwan

TAIPEI -- The Ministry of Justice said Friday that the Scottish secretary of justice has upheld a decision by the Edinburgh Sheriff Court to extradite Zain Taj Dean, a British citizen, to Taiwan to serve a jail sentence.

Dean, who has 14 days to appeal the decision, was convicted by a court in Taiwan and sentenced to four years in July 2012 after killing a Taiwanese man while driving drunk in March 2010.

He fled Taiwan using a friend's passport in August 2012, sparking an outcry.

The Edinburgh Sheriff Court made its extradition ruling in June this year that Dean should be extradited to Taiwan to serve his sentence.

We will see an appeal. If the appeal to Scottish courts fails, it will go to the High court in London then onto European Court of Justice and it will take years for him to be extradited.

I still have my misgivings about this trial due to the dubious nature of the judiciary system we have.
