Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS - FA­TIMA SCHROEDER

AU­THOR­I­TIES have four months to pre­pare them­selves for a for­mal hear­ing into whether Bri­tish fugi­tive Lee Tucker, 52, sought in the UK for child sex of­fences al­legedly com­mit­ted in 1998, should be ex­tra­dited to his home coun­try.
