Szlachetka v Circuit Court in Koszalin, Poland

Extradition – Delay. Although the judge should not have said that the appellant had only himself to blame for the delay, when he there had been an unexplained period of delay of over three years, it could not be concluded that, if the judge had decided the question in the way he ought to have done, he would have been required to order the appellant's discharge. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Poland for taking part in the beating up of a victim, as a result of which he suffered from bodily injuries.
