He may now appear before a judge in northern Paris to be remanded in custody or could also be swiftly transferred to the eastern city of Nancy with a view to being interrogated and charged over the abduction by an investigating magistrate.Daillet, 54, and his family had been arrested at the end of May by the Malaysian authorities after their visas expired. Kuala Lumpur then began the process of deporting them to France. headtopics.com
