Extradition date for retired Briton

Christopher Tappin is accused in the US of conspiring to sell Iranian missile components

A retired British businessman who has failed in his appeals over extradition will be sent to the United States on Friday next week, his lawyer has said.

Christopher Tappin, who is accused of conspiring to sell components for Iranian missiles, has been asked to attend Heathrow police station on February 24, when US marshals will escort him in custody to America, his lawyer Karen Todner said.

Tappin failed in a last-ditch plea to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to block extradition earlier this week.
