Fox v Public Prosecutor's Office of Frankfurt am Main

Extradition – Extradition order. The judge had been correct to find that there had been no reasonable grounds to believe that the competent authorities in Germany had not yet made the decision to charge and try the defendant in respect of two European arrest warrants relating to allegations of tax evasion. The Administrative Court held that the judicial authority issuing the warrants had been the Public Prosecutor in Germany, who was competent to make the decision to charge and try the defendant. The judge had been correct to order the defendant's extradition under s 12A of the Extradition Act 2003.
