Manecki v District Court in Kielce, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against a district judge's order for his extradition to Poland to serve the outstanding balance of a sentence imposed by the Polish court for theft. The court held that his extradition would not constitute a disproportionate interference with his rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights and that the weight, which the district judge had attached to the relevant factors, and her conclusion overall, had been well within the range open to a reasonable decision maker. Whilst the fact that the appellant and his family were currently living together militated against his extradition, that additional factor did not mean that the district judge's decision should be regarded as being wrong.
