*Puceviciene v Lithuanian Judicial Authority; Conrath v German Judicial Authority; Savov v Czech Judicial Authority

Extradition – Extradition order. The Divisional Court gave guidance on the correct construction and application of s 12A of the Extradition Act 2003. In particular, it indicated the relevant considerations in determining whether a decision to charge or try had been taken and the role of mutual legal assistance (MLA). In doing so, the court determined that Kandola and others v Generalstaatwaltschaft Frankfurt, Germany and others ([2015] All ER (D) 146 (Mar)) was clearly wrong in its consideration of MLA and should no longer be followed in that respect.
