Cypriot faces extradition over contraband.
Cyprus-born father of four Anastassios Andrew Louca, aged 47, of Holywell Lane, Conisbrough, is wanted in Germany in connection with allegations he evaded duty of e1/46 million by smuggling lorry-loads of tobacco into the country.
According to the South Yorkshire Times, Louca, who has lived in the UK for 28 years, was originally arrested by the Germans and accused of six offences of smuggling tobacco, each of which was said to have avoided around e1/4500,000 in tobacco duty.
He faces a maximum five-year sentence on each offence, said to have occurred in 2003 and 2004 after deliveries from Greece to a warehouse in Minden, Germany, were transported on to France and the UK.
Louca is fighting to block moves to extradite him to Germany.
He had already been granted bail at an earlier hearing so he could attend his daughterCOs Greek wedding, planned for Sutton-in-Ashfield.
His bail was renewed by magistrates in Westminster, London.
