Ex-Enron bankers lose final extradition plea

Former Natwest bankers to face trial in the US

The final legal avenue available to three former Enron bankers to avoid being
extradited from the UK to stand trial in the US has failed.

The European Court of Human Rights rejected the request to postpone the
extradition of David Bermingham, Gary Mulgrew and Giles Darby.

This follows a decision by the House of Lords last week to reject the three
men’s request to appeal against an earlier court decision which had made it
possible for the men to face trial in the US.

The three are likely to be flown to the US by mid-July.

Bermingham of Goring in Oxfordshire, Mulgrew, of Sible Hedingham in Essex,
and Darby, of Lower South Wraxall in Wiltshire, have been accused of seven
counts of wire fraud by the US.

The men claim said they are innocent and should be tried by a UK jury.
