British man to fight extradition in Supreme Court

A British man wanted in the UK on multi-million euro drug conspiracy charges has been given permission to challenge his extradition in the Supreme Court.

Father-of-three Philip Baron has lived in Ireland since the 1990s and was arrested last year at his home beside the K Club in New Road, Straffan, Co Kildare.

A High Court judge recently approved the 56-year -old's surrender to the British authorities.

Today, the same judge accepted that the case raised a point of exceptional public importance that warranted a hearing by the Supreme Court.
