Debiec v District Court of Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. To extradite the appellant to Poland to serve sentences for drug offences and fraud in his current state of health would violate art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights and his extradition was barred by the Extradition Act 2003 s 25 because of his mental illness. The Administrative Court, in allowing his appeal against extradition orders, found that the appellant had shown the requisite level of hardship, so that extradition would be disproportionate.
