Belbin v The Regional Court of Lille, France

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to France to serve a sentence of imprisonment of seven years for offences including money laundering. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that it had not been open to the appellant to argue that the forum bar in s 19B of the Extradition Act 2003 applied. Further, there had been no abuse of process nor, having rejected new evidence, disproportionate interference with his and his wife's rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
