Shumba and another v Public Prosecutor in Nanterre County Court, France and others

Extradition – Inhuman and degrading treatment. There might be substantial grounds for believing that the appellants faced a real risk of inhuman or degrading treatment, with respect to overcrowding, if they were extradited to France and there was sufficient evidence to require a request of the French authorities setting out certain questions on which specific information was need before the appellants' extradition could be permitted. The Divisional Court also dismissed the first and second appellants' grounds of appeal based on the passage of time and art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
