Sara Sharif: international manhunt over murder of girl, 10

On Thursday last week, the body of 10-year-ol Sara Sharif was found at her home in Working, Surrey.

The police said that the three people it was trying to find in connection with her death had left the UK the day before. The police is now working with international authorities to locate them.

Anna Bradshaw told the BBC that any future legal proceedings involving foreign courts were likely to be protracted.


“That’s an opportunity for the person to contest their extradition” she said.

“Some countries do not extradite their own nationals. Most countries will insist on the prima facie case to be met, and almost all countries will have some variation of a human rights test.”
