Dogaev v Czech Republic

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant Russian national appealed against orders for his extradition to the Czech Republic to face trial for endangering the safety of an aircraft by using or threatening violence. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the passage of time did not mean that his extradition would be unjust or oppressive. Further, on the basis that the Czech Republic would observe its international obligations, extradition did not carry a real risk of refoulement to Russia, and the interference with his private and family life would be proportionate.
