Kess v Examining Magistrate, Belgium

Extradition – Decision to try. The sole reason for the absence of the decision to try the appellant was her absence from Belgium. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeal against orders for her extradition to Belgium to face charges of people trafficking and sexual exploitation over a period of two years, further held that a 'yes'/'no' answer to the direct question whether the sole reason for absence of a decision to try was the appellant's absence from Belgium was not essential.
