Blaj v Court of Alesd, Romania; Roman v Law Court Of Valcea, Romania; Trebuian v Territorial Military Court of Romania

Extradition – Extradition order. Three appellants appealed against orders for their extradition to Romania to serve prison sentences on grounds including that there was a real risk that they would be subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment because of the poor conditions in all Romanian prisons. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeals, held that the appellants had not shown that they would be held in conditions breaching art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, in particular, with respect to their amount of individual space, especially given an assurance from the judicial authority to address that concern.
