Barrs v Financial Prosecutor of the Republic at the Higher Instance Court of Paris (a French judicial authority)

Extradition – Double jeopardy. The judge had been right to reject the double jeopardy bar to the appellant's extradition to France for a single offence of premeditated conspiracy to commit VAT fraud. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition, further held that the authorities in the present jurisdiction and in France were both ready, willing and able to respond appropriately to obviate the risk of self-harm or suicide.
