Peter Binning discusses suspected fraudster Mark Acklom on Sky News

One of Britain’s most-wanted fugitives has managed to evade police for a second time after he was spotted at a pavement cafe.

Acklom is wanted by Avon and Somerset Police for allegedly fleecing fiancee Carolyn Woods of all her savings, £850,000, in Gloucestershire four years ago. The warrant was issued last June, and in October Acklom’s name was added by the National Crime Agency to the latest list of 10 most-wanted fugitives.

If he felt safer in Switzerland he was wrong, according to British extradition lawyer Peter Binning, of Corker Binning.

He said: “Switzerland is a member of the Counsel of Europe, as is the UK, and there has been an extradition treaty amongst all Counsel of Europe Countries since 1957 and that treaty will apply to enable the British authorities to seek his extradition.”
