Convict returned to Switzerland after 16 years on the run
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.
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.
