UK resident faces extradition to Belgium on allegations of child abduction

Natasha Hayes, resident in the UK for 7 years, is challenging an extradition request from Belgium where she faces a 3-year jail sentence for child abduction. She was found guilty in her absence of abducting her son when she left Belgium with him in February 2010. A previous extradition request for her was dismissed by the courts in 2012, on the basis of her Article 8 right to a family life. Since that time she has married and had 2 more children. She was arrested on a European Arrest Warrant earlier this month and has been bailed awaiting trial.
