Murray, a suspect for masterminding the largest bank heist in UK history, was released from Moroccan jail and then re-arrested, according to reports.
Lee and others ran away with Ã‚Â£53,116,760 (or approximately $92.5 million US) from a Securitas Deport in Kent, England on February 22, 2006.
Murray fled to Morocco and was arrested there four months later, but was never tried for the robbery since there is no extradition agreement between the UK and Morocco. The official ruling came Wednesday that Murray would not be turned over to the UK police.
"At a hearing on June 24, Lee Murray was deemed to be Moroccan and therefore cannot be extradited to this country," a Kent police spokesperson said in a report on The Independent.
Murray was briefly a free man but was re-arrested after "British Authorities did put [in] a formal request to the Moroccan Authorities to have him tried in Morocco for the alleged robbery," Murray's attorney told Fan House.
According to the Sun in England, due to Murray's Moroccon heritage, Murray faces a maximum of ten years in jail for the robbery.
