The Supreme Court is set to deliver its landmark ruling after it reserved its judgement following a three-day extradition hearing last month.

The ruling is set to prove a landmark not only in Irish but in European law.

No one has ever been extradited from Ireland for questioning or possible prosecution to another country for a crime which occurred here.

Mr Bailey (54) -- who has vehemently protested his innocence and claimed efforts were made to frame him for the crime -- will attend the hearing in person alongside his legal team.
