Specialist Lip Reader

Spanish authorities fear that Meadows, who has already spent 3 months in a Spanish jail, could be exaggerating his condition.  His lawyer claimed at an extradition hearing that Meadows never learned sign language, and requires a specialist lip reader.  He claims he is unable to stand trial in Spain because he can’t lip read when people speak with a Spanish accent.

 

Harry Meadows has pleaded not guilty to stealing €350000 from cash machines along the Costa Del Sol between 2013 and 2014.
