Ciemniak v Regional Court in Bydgoszcz (Poland)

Extradition – Private and family life. The rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, not only of the appellant and his wife, but of his son, outweighed any public and international interest in the extradition of the appellant to serve a sentence for offences committed almost 11 years ago. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve a sentence for two drug offences, quashed the order and ordered the appellant's discharge.
