Ilia asks for Greek lawyer

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fugi­tive for­mer judge An­to­nia Ilia had her re­quest for bail turned down yes­ter­day when she ap­peared in a Lon­don court af­ter Greece re­quested her ex­tra­di­tion. The judge said he was sure Ilia would ab­scond if he granted her bail but agreed to al­low her time to study the pros­e­cu­tion’s doc­u­ments. The court will also con­sider Ilia’s re­quest to be rep­re­sented by a lawyer from Greece rather than the one ap­pointed by the English court. Ilia was found guilty last year of be­ing part of a trial-fix­ing ring. In her ab­sence, she was sen­tenced to al­most seven years in prison. She was ar­rested in Brighton, south of Lon­don, last Thurs­day.
