Zapala v Circuit Court, Warsaw, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The Administrative Court allowed the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve a sentence of one year's imprisonment for driving while disqualified. Although the judge had not had the benefit of the argument before the present court, in the special circumstances, he had been wrong to conclude that the appellant had been a fugitive and that argument tipped the balance under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights against return.
