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.
