TIME will tell if Michael Lynn, the man who made millions out of 'buckaleiros' – investors who ploughed their money into his failed property investments – has pulled a fast one on the Irish authorities.

The Federal Supreme Court of Brazil will ultimately decide whether the former solicitor, who left Ireland in 2007 with a suspected €80m mortgage fraud in his wake, will be extradited home to face criminal charges.

How long that battle lasts will be determined by how hard Lynn fights his surrender.
