Expeditious Discharge of European Arrest Warrant

Another interesting case undertaken by Oracle Solicitors in 2017 involved the expeditious (within one day) discharge of a European Arrest Warrant on the basis of mistaken identity.

Mistaken Identity

Our client was a 79 year old Swiss national arrested at Heathrow as a suspect of a murder that was committed over 50 years ago. The officers at Heathrow arrested our client on the basis that he shared the same name and a similar date of birth with the wanted person.

A photograph of the wanted person, taken 50 years ago, was produced which was not sufficient proof to discharge our client.

Further Proof Produced

Further evidence in the form of fingerprint analysis and photographs were arranged and the 79 year old walked free on the same day when the extradition proceedings started.
