Zemeckis v Regional Court of Panevezys, Lithuania

European Union – Police and judicial co-operation in criminal matters. The bail application of the applicant (Z) failed. The Administrative Court held that Z was, in substance, a fugitive from justice. Although he had attended both his trial and the sentencing hearing and, for present purposes, it was to be accepted that he had attended his appeal hearing, Z had left the country, and had remained outside it, knowing that that sentence had been upheld.
