BS v Court of First Instance Brussels (Belgium)

Practice – Extradition. The Divisional Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against the judge's decision ordering her extradition to Belgium to stand trial for an offence relating to the illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances. Even assuming that the principle of proportionality applied on a continuing basis to a European arrest warrant (EAW), namely, that if there was a material change of circumstance then there might need to be a re-review of the proportionality of the maintenance of an EAW, the appellant's submissions that there had been clear evidence of disproportionality on the particular facts could not be accepted.
