Ristea v Prosecutors Office Court of Bologna, Italy

Extradition – Abuse of process. It would be an abuse of the extradition processes for the appellant to be extradited to Italy to serve a nine‑year sentence and for him to be required to negotiate with the Italian authorities as to how much of that sentence he had served, in circumstances where he had thought, acting in accordance with Romanian law, that he had already served the sentence in Romania. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Italy to serve the sentence for an offence of exploiting the prostitution of a person under the age of 18.
