I’ve posted before about the mysterious case of Mr Bat Khurts, the Mongolian Head of Security, who was arrested on his arrival in the UK on charges of kidnapping and false imprisonment. His case has received strangely little coverage in the UK (with the honourable exception of The Independent), so I’ve been remiss in not informing you that the UK courts decided last month that he could be extradited to Germany to face trial. Mr Khurts has now lodged an appeal and so remains, for the moment, in HMP Wandsworth. This account, from the ever-reliable UB Post, is the fullest account I’ve so far found of the background to this bizarre story (though I’m not sure whether the reference to ‘those immortal words: “guilty till proven innocent”‘ in the final paragraph is irony or just a mistake). Watch this space, possibly.
