LONDON: The British high court confirmed its earlier oral ruling that Ryat should be sent back to Canada to face two counts of man slaughter and five charges of possession of explosives.

Canada had originally sought Ryats extradition on six explosive charges and two manslaughter counts. High court found great disparity between British and Canadian law in connection with its particulars.

Reyat’s lawyer Harjit Singh said his client would ask the house of Lords, Britain top legal body to throw out the Courts decision approving extradition on the seven remaining charges.

Reyat, 37, an electrician and former resident of Duncan BC was arrested last February near his home in conventry England.
