Palioniene v Prosecutor General's Office, Lithuania

Extradition – Private and family life. Balancing the factors in favour and against extradition, and taking the best interests of the appellant's son as a paramount consideration, her extradition was compatible with the art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights rights engaged. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against judge's decision to order her extradition to Lithuania for offences related to heroin.
