Gilewski v Sad Okregowy Kiecle, Poland

Extradition – Private and family life. The judge had given substantial weight to the public interest in fugitives not seeing the UK as a safe haven, which had been an irrelevant factor in the case, given his finding that the appellant had not been a fugitive. However, the Administrative Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve an activated suspended sentence of 10 months' imprisonment for theft of a mobile phone, held that the judge's decision, rejecting the appellant's private life claim, was not overall wrong.
