British businessman Christopher Tappin has made his first appearance in court after being extradited to the US.
Mr Tappin, who lost his two-year battle against being sent to America last week, faces up to 35 years in jail if convicted over arms dealing charges.
Last night he appeared for a five-minute preliminary hearing in the federal court in El Paso, Texas, and was remanded in custody to appear for a bail hearing on Friday.
Attorney General Dominic Grieve said his extradition had highlighted problems with the treaty between the UK and US, which are not “readily curable”.
