Michael Herba wins right to appeal against extradition to Italy in Chloe Ayling case

24th Dec 2017

Michael Herba, a suspect in the kidnapping of British model Chloe Ayling, has been granted the right to appeal against his extradition from the UK to Italy (see previous blog). Mr Herba maintains that the kidnapping itself was a sham, and that he was not involved in any event. Granting him leave to appeal, the High Court said that it was reasonably arguable that the Italian authorities had provided inadequate details of how Mr Herba was said to have participated the alleged kidnapping.

Mr Herba’s lawyers have said that they will renew their objection that the case is a sham, and will also argue that, if extradited, Mr Herba will not receive a fair trial.
