Prystaj and another v Circuit Court of Zielona Gora, Poland

Extradition – Specialty. The judge had not made the wrong decision in ordering the appellants' extradition to Poland to be prosecuted for robbery with violence. The Administrative Court rejected the appellants' arguments that the judge had erred in concluding that their surrender: (i) did not contravene s 17 of the Extradition Act 2003; (ii) was not an abuse of process; (iii) was not unjust or oppressive by virtue of passage of time; and (iv) would not be disproportionate in light of their rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
