Slovak to be extradited to Scotland to face rape and murder charges

The Košice Regional Prosecutor on July 9 decided to extradite a 32-year-old Slovak man based in Gelnica (Košice region) to Scotland so that he can face charges of rape and murder.

The Košice Regional Prosecutor on July 9 decided to extradite a 32-year-old Slovak man based in Gelnica (Košice region) to Scotland so that he can face charges of rape and murder.

The decision follows a preliminary investigation based on a European Arrest Warrant (EAW) for the man (referred to only as Marek H.) that was submitted by the sheriff at Lothian and Borders on June 17, said a spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office. He confirmed that Marek H. was detained on June 18 in Slovakia on suspicion of the rape and murder of 40-year-old sales consultant Moira Jones, whose body was found in Queen's Park in Glasgow on May 29. The Prosecutor fast-tracked the process after the suspect agreed to his extradition.

"The Prosecutor's Office's ruling is valid and cannot be contested. The extradition will be arranged by Interpol's national centres in both countries within 10 days of the decision," the spokesman added. TASR
