‘Rape’ cop appeal fail
A POLICEMAN wanted in Antigua for rape faces extradition after losing a human rights challenge.
London-based PC Lee Martin-cramp, 25, argued it would be inhumane for him to be detained at the Caribbean island’s squalid 18th century prison.
But Antigua’s authorities got a judge at Westminster magistrates court to sign off the extradition with an offer of accommodation.
They agreed to house Martin-cramp on a former US air base with air conditioning, a fridge and bathroom. A date for his extradition has yet to be set.
Met officer Martincramp is suspected of raping a student at a family wedding three years ago.
Scotland Yard confirmed he had been suspended and will be subject to disciplinary procedures once the criminal case has been concluded.
