Thank you for your question. If the person you lent the money to is in the UK then you can sue in the UK courts. If the person also lives in Crete then you can't and the courts in Crete would have jurisdiction. The only exception would be if you have a written contract which expressly states that the UK courts would have jurisdiction. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
