Kirchanov and others v District Prosecutor's Office, Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria and others

Extradition – Extradition order. The Divisional Court, in the appellants' appeals against orders for their extradition to Bulgaria, held that it was necessary to ask the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice and the issuing judicial authorities for specified supplemental information. Evidence that previous assurances intended to prevent individuals being subjected to conditions which amounted to inhuman and degrading treatment had been broken had rebutted the presumption that the present assurances would be fulfilled.
