'Liberation leader' for extradition

Adam Busby, 64, is understood to be facing several charges dating from 2009 and 2010, including a threat to poison Gordon Brown

The self-appointed leader of the Scottish National Liberation Army is to be extradited from Ireland.

Adam Busby, 64, is understood to be facing several charges dating from 2009 and 2010, including a threat to poison Gordon Brown and contaminate water supplies.

Mr Busby, originally from Paisley, has described himself as leader of the army and has lived in Ireland since the 1980s.

He was detained last year under a European Arrest Warrant issued by the Crown Office in Scotland.

The High Court in Dublin ruled on Monday that he should be extradited to answer the charges under the warrant.

Crown Office officials "note the decision of the court" but made no further comment.

Mr Busby was detained in custody and is due to be extradited in the next two weeks, subject to any appeals.
