Rapist faces extradition

November 27, 2008

A UK court has ordered the extradition of a convicted rapist who fled Israel before he could be jailed for a sex attack on an underage boy.
Nachman Stal, 38, was recaptured in June after police stopped to help him change a tyre on the A40 in West London.

It is believed Stal had lived secretly in Stamford Hill, North London, after leaving Israel in 2006. He had been convicted of raping and indecently assaulting the underage boy in his car in Tel Aviv.

On Wednesday, the City of Westminster Magistrates’ court ordered him to be sent back. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith must approve the judgement.
A final decision is expected in January.
