Stedman v French Judicial Authority

Extradition – Extradition order. The European arrest warrant (the EAW) seeking the appellant's extradition to France to serve the remaining sentence of four years, one month and twelve days for nine drug trafficking offences, although the respondent judicial authority accepted that the appellant had only been convicted of eight offences, had not resulted in an abuse of process. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition, further held that the EAW had contained sufficient particulars and had concerned extradition offences.
