British authorities are reportedly planning to extradite Kevin Spacey from the US to the UK on four counts of sexual harassment.
On Thursday, May 26, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) acquitted four cases related to the alleged assault of three men between 2005 and 2013 following a Metro police investigation.
Nick Vamos, a former CPS deporte, told the Guardian that legal reinstatement could take months, and US officials need to review documents sent from Britain.
They will then need to hear if there is a ‘possible’ cause for the crimes to take place, before finding and locking up the character.
‘The U.S. Department of Justice will issue US amnesty to find Mr. Spacey and take him to state court. He always had the opportunity to dedicate himself and not oppose the repatriation, ‘Mr Vamos told the newspaper.
The former CPS official said it was more difficult to resist a request for repatriation to the US than to Britain.
If he does not oppose the plan, it may be within weeks, explains Mr. Vamos.
He added that extradition issues provide greater protection, as Mr Spacey will face charges that have been agreed to by the US, as part of the process.
If he returns to the UK and is charged, he could return to the US immediately, if bail arrangements allow him to cross the Atlantic.
The four charges relate to allegations of assault on three men in London and Gloucestershire.
The first alleged attack in London involved a man, now in his 40s, in March 2005.
The actor allegedly created another man, now in his 30s, to have sex illegally in August 2008, in London. Mr. Spacey is accused of sexually abusing another man, now in his 30s, in April 2013, in Gloucestershire.
The actor, who appeared in the House of Cards and was the artistic director of the Old Vic theater in London from 2004 to 2015, has dismissed all allegations.
On Friday, Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said: ‘CPS has authorized criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 62, on four counts of sexually assaulting three men.
‘CPS also authorizes a single case for causing a person to have oral sex without consent. The authority to prosecute follows a review of evidence collected by Metro Police in their investigation.
‘The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Spacey are valid and that he has the right to a fair trial.’
A spokesman said CPS had approved the charges against Kevin Spacey, but had not yet been charged by police.
Spacey has won an Oscar twice and is best known for starring American Beauty, The Usual Suspects and House Of Cards.
He came out gay in 2017.
