Checkered Past Landed This Czech in Trouble

Bali Authorities Send Czech Tomas Toman Wanted for Manslaughter Back Home

(3/16/2013) Tomas Toman, a national of the Czech republic has been extradited by the Indonesian justice system after his arrest and incarceration by Bali police at the request of Interpol.

Toman, a fugitive on the run from police in his home nation, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for a beating death that occured in a restaurant in Prague.

The man had been traveling to a number of countries in an effort to avoid arrest. That sojourn came to an end when he was taken into custody by Indonesian police in Bali in response to a “red notice” sent by Czech Republic police.

Toman’s efforts to seek city arrest in Bali based on the promise of a financial bond and guarantees from an Indonesian girlfriend were unsuccessful.

Although the Indonesian courts lack a bilateral extradition agreement with Czech Republic, the Indonesian justice department granted a special request through diplomatic channels to take Toman into custody and return him to Prague to serve his prison sentence.

As a result, he was placed him on an airplane bound for home on Friday, March 15, 2013.
