Cash v Court of First Instance, Strasbourg, France

Extradition – Discharge. It would be unjust and oppressive to extradite the appellant because he was unfit to stand trial and was seriously mentally ill, with paranoid schizophrenia. Accordingly, the Administrative Court, in allowing his appeal against orders for his extradition to France to stand trial for 20 offences of fraud, attempted fraud and employing a minor obliged to attend school, held that the judge should have decided that extradition was barred by s 25 of the Extradition Act 2003.
