Convict returned to Switzerland after 16 years on the run

National News // Aug. 29, 2017

A man has been returned to Switzerland to complete his jail term for attempted murder after 16 years on the run.

 He was arrested in Marseille.

F. Laffont-Feraud Convict returned to Switzerland after 16 years on the run

The 58 year old was sentenced to 6 years in jail after stabbing his boss at a department store in Geneva in 1997. He was sentenced in 2001 – but escaped from jail shortly after.

But he won’t be given additional time for the escape – as escaping from jail is not an offence in Switzerland.
