Serra and another v Republic of Paraguay

Extradition – Extradition hearing. The judge had been entitled to conclude that there had been no material risk of breach of art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights in extraditing the appellants to Paraguay to stand trial on charges of breach of trust and money-laundering. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appellants' appeal against the judge's conclusion that there was no legal impediment to their extradition, held that there was no basis for supposing that the requesting state would do other than deliver on the assurances it had given.
