Antonov and another v Prosecutor Generals Office Lithuania

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellants appealed against orders for their extradition to Lithuania to face criminal prosecutions for abuse of office, theft, forgery and fraudulent management of accounts. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeals, held that there was no risk that the appellants were being prosecuted on account of, or that their trial would be prejudiced because of, their political opinions. There was no evidence of a real risk that the threshold as to art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights would be reached with respect to the prison conditions. Further, the judge had given adequate reasons and further disclosure was not justified.
