U.S. judge allows extradition of two men accused of aiding Ghosn escape

WASHINGTON, Jan 28 (Reuters) - A federal judge in Boston on Thursday rejected a last-ditch effort by two men to avoid being extradited to Japan to face charges they helped former Nissan Motor Co Ltd Chairman Carlos Ghosn flee the country.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani clears the way for U.S. Army Special Forces veteran Michael Taylor and his son, Peter Taylor, to be handed over to Japan, after the U.S. State Department approved their extradition.
