    So much conflicting information in the newspaper reporting on this case.
    I'd found one Hungarian article that had said they were given information regarding the extradition proceedings which they had said they received from " a press release sent to our newspaper by the Metropolitan Court" A magyar rendőrség "fejvadászai" kapták el a Kanadában gyilkoló milliomoscsemetéket | 24.hu
    I looked it up...
    From the Budapest METROPOLITAN COURT page Egy kanadai emberölési ügyben körözött két személy ideiglenes kiadatási letartóztatásáról döntött a Fővárosi Törvényszék | Fővárosi Törvényszék
    “METROPOLITAN COURT DECIDES ON TEMPORARY EXTRADITION ARREST OF TWO PEOPLE IN A CANADIAN HOMICIDE CASE
    Published June 16, 2021, 12:51 PM
    The Metropolitan Court (FT) has ordered the temporary extradition arrest of a Canadian woman and a Slovak-Canadian man against whom the Canadian District Court of Ontario has issued an international arrest warrant”.

    And the PDF from the page

    The Hungarian version of the ACTUAL media release from the court.Not quite how the papers have been reporting it. I'll highlight that in bold in the English version. Note that the translation is not perfect

    I hope she sings like a bird. I wonder where her home is for now... Barton St. jail?

    Lucy Li returns to Canada to face Hamilton murder charge

    Police had the opportunity to talk to Li, he said, but would not disclose whether she has provided any information.

    “The drive now to bring Oliver home is paramount,” Callender said.

    ...

    Karafa, who is also a citizen of neighbouring Slovakia, is fighting extradition and remains in custody in Hungary. Callender said his understanding is that Karafa’s extradition hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. A court decision is expected to be relatively quick. However, Karafa could have the opportunity to appeal.

    On this morning's newscast (CHCH), they reported that Lucy Li is to appear in court today while Oliver Karafa continues to fight extradition in Hungary.

    So she's being held in Milton (Vanier Centre for Women). Sounds nicer than Barton St. jail -- pity. Next court date for her is August 24th.

    Hungarian extradition hearing adjourned for man accused of murder in Hamilton

    A court in Hungary has adjourned the extradition hearing for accused murderer Oliver Karafa in order to gather more information on his case from Canadian authorities.

    The court ruled Friday that Karafa will be incarcerated in the meantime, according to an email sent to The Spectator from the media office at the Metropolitan Court in Budapest, and a new extradition trial date set after the court communicates with the Department of Justice in Ottawa.

    Seems the delay tactics are working so far...

    Oliver Karafa extradition hearing postponed in Budapest

    Accused murderer Oliver Karafa has once again had his extradition hearing delayed in Hungary.

    In a statement, the Metropolitan Court of Budapest said the extradition hearing was postponed Tuesday after the defence applied for more information from Canadian judicial authorities.

    The next trial date will be set after receiving the additional information.

    Yesterday's article has been updated. Apparently he has concerns for his safety if he is returned to Canada. Oh and his team is looking into the victim's background. I guess they are hoping it's his own fault he was murdered? What a joke.

    ‘Life and death’ safety concerns delay Oliver Karafa extradition hearing in Budapest

    ...concerns about his safety and right to a fair trial in Hamilton.

    ...the courts sought more information and assurances about what would happen to him in Canada...

    Karafa... said that it wasn’t just a matter of extradition to Canada but a matter of life and death.

    Karafa’s lawyers had requested more information from Canadian authorities this summer around safety at the Hamilton-Wentworth Detention Centre and concerns around Hamilton police conducting a fair investigation.

    ...they said the replies received were general and did not address Karafa’s specific concerns. They cited media reports, including ones about problems at the Barton Street jail.

    Karafa’s defence team also indicated they have hired a private investigator to look into Pratt and wanted to wait for the results of that investigation, which would take three to four weeks.

    ...Canadian lawyer Leora Shemesh confirmed she is representing Karafa...

    The next date is expected to be in November.

    In danger in Canada rbbm. ??!
    HUNTER: Millennial Clyde will battle extradition to bitter end | Canoe.Com
    Nov 13 2021
    ''The 28-year-old is caged in a Budapest prison as his lengthy extradition procedure winds it’s way through the Hungarian court system. And sources in that country say that rich kid Karafa will fight his extradition “to the bitter end.”

    “He’ll do whatever it takes to avoid being sent back to Canada,” one source said. “Karafa’s lawyers are throwing up a lot of smoke about the dangers he faces if he’s returned to Canada but … there’s not a lot of evidence for that argument.”

    “There was a court hearing in September at which Oliver’s local counsel raised various concerns about his safety if transferred to Canada,” a source told The Toronto Sun. “They also raised some concerns about corruption in the Hamilton police force on the basis of some articles that had been published earlier.”

    *sigh*

    UPDATE: Oliver Karafa extradition case delayed again in Budapest

    Just hours after issuing a notice that Oliver Karafa’s extradition case was to resume in Hungary on Monday, the Budapest Metropolitan Court says it’s once again being postponed — this time due to COVID-19.

    “Due to a situation that has occurred regarding the COVID-19 pandemic just now, the Monday court hearing was postponed,” the court said in a message to the Spectator Friday morning (around 3 p.m. Budapest time).

    ...

    The court said the situation only affects Karafa’s case and no other courthouse operations.

    It’s unclear what this means, including whether someone connected to the case has tested positive for the virus.

    At last, some progress.

    Budapest court finds Oliver Karafa can be extradited for Hamilton murder charge

    According to a news release from the Metropolitan Court of Budapest it found during a hearing on Saturday that “the conditions for extradition ... were met.”

    However, the order is not final, the court notes.

    The court confirmed Karafa and his lawyers are appealing. The case will now be heard by the Budapest Regional Court of Appeal.

    Bail hearing for Lucy Li begins in Hamilton

    Details of the bail hearing, including evidence and any reasons given by the judge for his decision, cannot be reported because of a publication ban. Such bans are standard at bail hearings.

    Li’s bail hearing is set for two days. It’s not yet clear when Superior Court Justice Andrew Goodman will make his ruling.

    In court Monday Li sat in the prisoner’s box. A number of family members sat in the courtroom.

    Budapest Court of Appeal upholds Oliver Karafa extradition

    Oliver Karafa is headed back to Hamilton, after losing his appeal against extradition in Hungary.

    According to a release from the Budapest-Capital Regional Court of Appeal Wednesday, the court upheld the decision to extradite Karafa to Canada...

    [Karafa] also hired a private investigator to look into Pratt. His lawyers have alleged the murder victim as having “extensive criminal connections and his associates want to avenge (Pratt’s) death.”

    However, the court dismissed these concerns...

    Whew, that's a lot of money to post as surety. I hope she doesn't run off on them.
