    Quotes from NUA prior to being taken in for questioning:


    http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/view...ver-her-death/

    Yesterday detectives hunting the killer spent much of the day quizzing neighbour Mr Tabak. Last week he told a reporter outside his home that everyone in the area was sad about Jo’s murder.

    He added: “I wasn’t here on the night she went missing, I was away and I don’t know anyone who saw or heard anything.

    “We are all very sad about it, and although I didn’t know Miss Yeates, I am deeply saddened by what *happened.”

    Legal opinion on sub judice as applied to English court cases

    From the website outlaw.com (run by Pinsent Masons, a law firm):

    http://www.out-law.com/page-9742

    Publishers should not assume that users will respect court-imposed restrictions on content.

    In the case of Baby P, a 17 month old boy who died in 2007 as a result of injuries sustained from repeated abuse, the names of the child, his mother and boyfriend were published on numerous blogs and social networking sites by users who were either choosing to deliberately breach reporting restrictions or were unaware of the sub judice rule. Site moderators were kept occupied removing references to the individuals' identities which were posted by users as well as attempting to ascertain whether the details had been indexed or cached before they were removed from the forum.

    In respect of user-generated content, most sites follow the 'notice and take-down' approach whereby publishers remove potentially-unlawful content quickly upon receiving notification.

    Some sites also use automated monitoring. In 2006, the New York Times used technology to block British visitors to its website so that it could report on a terrorism trial. The material used in the report was believed to be sub judice in Britain. However, advice should always be sought in individual cases to confirm that any such automated measures are appropriate.

    What is considered to be 'taking reasonable care' will change as more sophisticated monitoring technologies become available. Publishers should periodically review their procedures to ensure that they will still be seen to be sufficiently rigorous and that their response to already published material, whether removing it or disabling access, is sufficiently prompt.

    Admin or the WS owner pulled it due to repeated problems with posters after numerous warnings and it taking an extra ordinary amount of moderator time. Unfortunately that happens with cases when posters can't behave. None of the moderators or admin are paid, they all volunteer their time and when a case takes up too much time it unfortunately goes poof never to return.

    Hope that helps!

    Does anyone know the answer to this:
    If a person commits murder in the Uk then goes to Holland, could they avoid the consequences by staying there? I guess I'm asking would they be extradited?

    Yes, they are, but I wasn't being literal, more...geographical...plus, all of those had been ruled out in this case (so far anyway).

    I cannot for the life of me understand how a man, the closest neighbour to Joanna, only a few steps from her front door was ruled out as a suspect so early on in the case. He must have had what seemed to be a watertight alibi or he would have been number one suspect. We never even heard of the man, only that foreign students lived in his flat and were away at the time. Now all of a sudden after all this time his name pops out of nowhere and he's charged with murder all within a week. Can't understand why CJ was so strongly considered a suspect and he wasn't.

    He said "on the night she went missing" yet as far as we all knew it could be any time from approx 9pm on the 17th Jan, until the time that Greg arrived home - nothing was certain or confirmed.

    I found details of this case which illustrates this. http://www.gazetteherald.co.uk/news/...n_Norton_fire/ however it's a completely different case, the guy didn't put his hands around someones neck and strangle the life out of them.
    I think so too ... a person charged with murder can be convicted of lesser charges - per the list in the last link. I would expect that if he is convicted, regardless of sentence, he will then apply to be transferred to the Netherlands to be closer to family.

    They've been ruled out. A man has been charged for her murder. I think people should give her boyfriend and family a break now IMO.

    I would imagine that is EU law for them to be detained & escorted back to the UK, but dont quote me on that ??

    I have already asked the question with no reply as to whether a Dutch national can serve a life sentence for murder in the UK or do they have to be returned to the Netherlands ??

    From the wikipeadia section on extradition treaties:

    [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extradition[/ame]

    The usual extradition agreement safeguards relating to dual-criminality, the presence of prima facie evidence and the possibility of a fair trial have been waived by many European nations for a list of specified offences under the terms of the European Arrest Warrant. The warrant entered into force in eight European Union (EU) member-states on 1 January 2004, and is in force in all member-states since 22 April 2005.

    I don't know, but I'm pretty sure that if Tabak was in Eindhoven and charged with murder in Bristol, he would be transferred without much interference.

    Instead of just saying "thanks", I'll say that was an excellent observation.

    I have found a booklet entitled 'Foreign national prisoners' published by the HM Prison Service (http://www.hmprisonservice.gov.uk/ad...onalprisoners/) so I would imagine a Dutch national would serve a sentence in the UK once convicted.

    They can apply to serve their sentence in their home country though.

    I know from following the van der Sloot case that he could request transfer from Peru to the Netherlands if there was a treaty in place. There is not one between Peru and the Netherlands at this time (still under review), but I would expect that as part of the EU, there would be a treaty in place between the UK and NL.
