Ex-judge re­prieve.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Lon­don court de­cided on Satur­day to post­pone un­til June 17 the hear­ing of the fugi­tive ex-judge An­to­nia Ilia whose ex­tra­di­tion Greek authorities are seek­ing. Ilia’s lawyer has been given two weeks to pre­pare her client’s de­fense. Ilia was found guilty last year of be­ing part of a trial-fix­ing ring and sen­tenced to al­most seven years in prison. The suspect de­nies that she is Ilia de­spite the fact that tests on her fin­ger­prints have con­firmed her iden­tity. Ilia has been on the run since be­ing charged with work­ing with cor­rupt lawyers to fix the out­comes of tri­als but was ar­rested in Brighton, south of Lon­don, on May 12. She had been teach­ing French at a lo­cal col­lege and in­sisted that she was not An­to­nia Ilia but a French cit­i­zen.
