The Law Lords have given the go-ahead for a man wanted for credit card fraud in Helsinki to appeal against the High Court's refusal of his application for habeas corpus. Sami Saad Alla Badbah Kiriakos was convicted in Helsinki in 1990. However, pending appeal he was released from custody and left Finland. His conviction was subsequently confirmed and the Finnish government now want him extradited from the UK.
