*Elashmawy v Court of Brescia, Italy

Extradition – Extradition order. The Divisional Court gave a definitive judgment that the evidence demonstrated that there were not substantial grounds for believing that there was a real risk that the appellant or the first interested party would face prison conditions that had been in breach of art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights on extradition to Italy. Either the presumption was restored that Italy, as a European Union state, would fulfil its obligations under art 3 of the Convention or Italy had proved, by cogent evidence, to relieve the doubts.
