De Zorzi v Attorney General Appeal Court of Paris (France)

Extradition – Extradition order. The district judge had been wrong to find that the appellant was a fugitive. Accordingly, his conclusions on both s 14 of the Extradition Act 2003 and art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights were fundamentally undermined. The Administrative Court so ruled, in allowing the appellant's appeal against the district judge's decision, ordering her extradition to France in respect of a conviction in 2001 on five charges of buying, possessing, trafficking, importing and smuggling 1400 doses of LSD from the Netherlands. In so doing, the court considered the proper approach to determining whether a person was a 'fugitive'.
