Schreiber loses latest bid

Court rejects Schreiber's attempt to avoid extradition

Karlheinz Schreiber, the German-Canadian businessman embroiled in the Oliphant Commission, had his latest attempt to avoid extradition to Germany thwarted by the Ontario Court of Appeal. The court rejected the claim, made by Schreiber’s legal team, that his extradition be delayed due to an unratified 1979 Canada-Germany Extradition Treaty. Schreiber was first charged with tax evasion, fraud and bribery in Germany in 2004.
