Dziel v District Court in Bydgoszcz, Poland

Extradition – Fugitive. The appellant had been deliberately absent from his trial, he had waived his right to attend or had chosen not to attend whenever it might be and whatever the consequences might be, and there was no breach of art 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights in his extradition. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed his appeal against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve all but one day of eight months' imprisonment for two offences of assault.
