British fraudster Michael Brown to be extradited

Authorities in the Dominican Republic said they have extradited Michael Brown - the multi-millionaire fraudster who donated £2.5 million to fund the Liberal Democrats' 2005 election campaign.

Police said he would be flown to Spain, where he will be turned over to British officials. Brown was arrested in January in the popular Dominican tourist town of Punta Cana. He had been living in the country under a different name.
