Yilmaz and another v Government of Turkey

Extradition – Prohibition of torture. The Divisional Court held that it needed further information in order to have objective, reliable, specific and properly updated evidence of the conditions in which the appellants would be held in prison in Turkey, before it could decide whether there was a real risk that they would be subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment. Accordingly, it adjourned the appellants' appeal against orders for their extradition to Turkey for offences described as plunder, torment and restriction of freedom of person by using coercion, threat or deceit imputed on the suspect pending receipt of answers to specified questions.
