England fan Garry Mann loses Portugal extradition fight

editor - January 19, 2010

BBC NEWS

An England fan has lost his latest fight to avoid being extradited to Portugal to serve a jail term for his involvement in a riot during Euro 2004.

Appeal Court judge Lord Justice Moses said the High Court had no jurisdiction to intervene in the extradition of Garry Mann, 51, of Faversham, Kent.

Mann was given a two-year sentence for his role in football-related violence in Albufeira in the Algarve. He was deported after the case but not made to serve the sentence in the UK.

Jago Russell, chief executive of Fair Trials International, said: "We will continue to fight against Garry's extradition which would be a travesty of justice and make a mockery of Europe's fast-track extradition system."
