Two charged in London Whale losses still in Europe – MarketWatch

The two former J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. traders charged in the “London Whale” losses remain in Europe, frustrating the U.S. government.

The Justice Department says that Javier Martin-Artajo is in Spain, “resisting extradition” to the U.S. Extradition from Spain can take months or years if contested in court. Julien Grout, a French citizen, is in France, where he is “virtually immune from extradition” because France “will generally not extradite its own citizens,” the U.S. government said.
