This afternoon BetonSports.com boss David Carruthers is scheduled to have a bail hearing, although prosecutors are asking the judge to keep him in jail until his trial, according to the BBC. Carruthers was arrested during a layover in the US while returning to his home in Costa Rica from his online gambling company’s annual meeting.
We're told that this story is getting a lot of play in the UK, coming so closely after the extradition of the NatWest 3. There's a growing impression, it seems, that the US legal system is on an out-of-control anti-business terror.
