Visha v Criminal Court of Monza, Italy

Extradition – Prohibition on torture. The evidence as it had been presented before the judge had not established substantial or sufficient grounds for him to find it necessary to proceed to seek further information in the circumstances and it would not be just to admit, and not unjust to refuse to admit, fresh evidence. Accordingly, the Divisional Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against for his extradition to Italy to face prosecution for offences arising out of his alleged involvement in a criminal gang committing offences that included murder, exploitation and the facilitation of prostitution and burglary.
