If they are not charged here, the three face automatic extradition to the United States
Three City bankers will be extradited to the United States for alleged involvement in the scandal around US bankrupt energy giant Enron.
David Bermingham, Gary Mulgrew and Giles Darby will launch a judicial review of a decision by the SFO not to prosecute them in Britain. Mr Mulgrew is the son of Trish Godman MSP, the deputy presiding officer of the Scottish Parliament. On Thursday they were yesterday given permission by the High Court to challenge their treatment by the Serious Fraud Office.
If they are not charged here, the three face automatic extradition to the United States under the terms of the Extradition Act of 2003.
