    That is an interesting point. Regarding the food and lodgings, I suppose a "poor" Country like Kenya should expect some financial aid. The UN would be an apt source.

    Chaps need to realise that nowadays the British Govt will not hand anyone over to another country if they face the death penalty. And anyone who does a bolter from a murder insuch a country and manages to reach these shores has got his counter home, no extradition and support for life. Meanwhile if the Kenya Supreme Court or whatever decides the Kenyan courts do not have jurisdiction as to place, then this little scheme is stymied.
