Blanchard’s legal win


AN ACCOUNTANT accused of laundering cash for the ex-henchman of late gangster John Palmer has won a battle against extraditio­n to Spain.

Paul Blanchard, 76, faced up to 15 years in prison if convicted. He denies the allegation­s, claiming to be a police informant whose evidence led to the arrest of Lebanese businessma­n Mohamed Derbah, who worked for Palmer before setting up a rival empire.
