Partner Edward Grange has been quoted in the MailOnline and Daily Express, on the news that Prince Andrew is facing a civil claim for alleged historic abuse, where he discusses the possibility of his extradition to the US.
“In short, extradition can not take place for as long as the case remains within the civil jurisdiction. Prince Andrew would only be at peril of extradition if he were charged with a criminal offence in the USA that carries a sentence of imprisonment of 12 months or more. Even then, whilst an extradition request could be made to the UK, no doubt careful thought would be given as to whether such steps should be taken given that it would be a very bold move for prosecutors to take because of the undoubted diplomatic headache it could cause for the two jurisdictions.’
Mr Grange added: ‘If he were to be charged with a criminal offence in the US and if the US were to seek his extradition, his British nationality would not result in a dismissal of the request as Britain extradites its own citizens.’
