Zengota v Circuit Court of Zielona Gora, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeals against orders for his extradition to Poland on five European arrest warrants, held that, although individual assessment of each offence was needed in considering oppression by reason of the passage of time, if a requested person's extradition was ordered for one or more offences, any oppressive effects of extradition in relation to further offending were likely to be much diminished. Accordingly, the judge had been correct to find that extradition had not been barred by reason of oppression through the passage of time.
