An alleged contract killer of Polish nationality,who is to stand trial for a murder in Berlin,was on Thursday allowed to be extradited by a court in the Patiala House courts complex.

Adam Piotr Mancic is alleged to have gunned down Friedhelm Sodenkamp on November 3,2008,at the Berlin-Mitte city centre for 25,000 euros.

“The above discussion (in the order) shows that prima facie a case for extradition of the fugitive criminal to the requesting state is made out. I hereby recommend to the Union of India,the extradition of the fugitive criminal Adam Piotr Mancic to the requesting state (Germany),” Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Amit Bansal said.

Mancic has been lodged in a district jail under judicial custody since March 2009. He was arrested in Goa on the basis of an Interpol notice issued on German authorities’ request.

The court,while recommending the extradition,also took into account the extradition treaty between India and Germany,which came into effect on May 28,2004.
