Gavin Tollman wins reprieve after extraordinary plan to smuggle him over Canadian border

A British executive wanted in the US on tax evasion charges has had his
extradition blocked after a judge objected to the underhand tactics of US
prosecutors.

Gavin Tollman, accused of large scale tax evasion through a Channel Islands
bank accounts, won the reprieve after a judge took exception to US attempts to
arrest him stealthily through Canada.

The judge called the US moves an ‘abuse of process’, The Times
reported.

Tollman, a US citizen but British resident, denies the charges against him.
