Swiercz v Regional Court in Poznan (Poland)

Extradition – Extradition hearing. In approached the task of weighing the public interest in extradition against the effect that extradition to Poland would have on the appellant's rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, the judge erred in treating the appellant's offending as serious. The Administrative Court found that the offence of defrauding women to a total cost of £305 although not trivial, was not a serious case of fraud and was unlikely to attract a custodial sentence according to domestic standards.
