Scuba enthusiast fights extradition

Posted on 18th January 2016

Commenting on his client’s case, Edward Jones, senior associate said:

“The Maltese decision to pursue criminal charges against Mr Martin in this case is very difficult to understand. Tens of thousands of scuba divers attend Malta every year and if they think that there is a risk that they will be prosecuted – if someone in their group is accidentally injured or dies, they simply will not go. All the evidence that we have seen – including evidence gathered during the course of a very thorough inquest into the deaths conducted by HM Coroner for the City of Brighton & Hove – points firmly to the conclusion that Mr Martin did nothing wrong. To say that he caused the deaths of two divers in the group is therefore simply factually incorrect.”
