GW v Serious Fraud Office

Extradition – Specialty rule. Following the applicant's extradition from Sweden, the prosecution was not limited by the specialty rule with regard to the evidence it was entitled to adduce to establish his guilt, provided the offences tried complied with the rule. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in refusing the applicant's and respondent Serious Fraud Office's applications for permission to appeal, further held that the judge had been plainly right in requiring the SFO to confine the particulars to the period for which he could be tried in Sweden.
