Official: UK fugitive won't fight extraditionMay 13, 2013 @ 5:25 am
MADRID (AP) - A Spanish court says a British fugitive who was arrested while sunbathing at a luxury villa has told a judge he will not fight his extradition.
Andrew Terence Moran was taken into custody on Friday in Spain's eastern town of Calpe.
Moran is accused of taking part in the armed robbery of 25,000 pounds from a mail van in England in 2005, then escaping from security guards during his UK trial four years ago.
On Monday, the National Court spokesman said Moran told Judge Javier Gomez Bermudez he will not fight his extradition. But the court also said Moran has an unspecified legal issue pending in Spain and the judge must decide if this will delay extradition.
The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with court rules.
