R (on the application of Lazarov) v Westminster Magistrates Court

Extradition – Appeal. The errors in the judgment on the claimant's extradition to Bulgaria had the cumulative effect that the reasons simply could not be considered as addressing the true and actual facts of the case at all, and the decision was tantamount to a nullity. As the Administrative Court could only allow the appeal if the case could only have been properly decided against extradition, it granted the claimant's application for judicial review, while stressing that the judgment and decision were no warrant or precedent for the incursion of judicial review into the field of extradition.
