A Lon­don court de­cided yes­ter­day to post­poned for a sec­ond time the hear­ing of the fugi­tive exjudge An­to­nia Ilia, whose ex­tra­di­tion Greek authorities are seek­ing. The trial was put off un­til July 4 fol­low­ing a re­quest by Ilia’s lawyer for ad­di­tional time 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. Ilia is to watch the trial pro­ceed­ings by live video link from the prison where she is be­ing held as her pres­ence is not deemed nec­es­sary in court. Ear­lier this month, the suspect de­nied that she is Ilia de­spite the fact that tests on her fin­ger­prints have con­firmed her iden­tity.
