Filan v Regional Court in Szczecin, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Poland was ordered to serve a sentence 150 days' imprisonment for possession of cannabis. He had been remanded in custody for approximately seven months in the United Kingdom. The respondent accepted that it was arguable that the time he had served in custody exceeded the term for which extradition was sought and did not resist the appeal, but offered undertakings. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that that was the right solution to the problem and there was no force to the submission that there should be a declaration that the continued existence of the warrant was an abuse of process.
