Indonesia extradites Czech national

18-03-2013

Indonesia has extradited a Czech national convicted of murder to the Czech Republic. This is the first case of its kind since the two countries do not have an agreement on the extradition of offenders. The decision may set an important precedent. Tomas Toman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison in 2008 for beating to death a young man at a Prague night club. He fled the country to evade the jail sentence, going first to Australia and later to Indonesia in the hope that the authorities would not give him up.
