Garbowski v Regional Court tin Warsaw, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Poland was ordered to stand trial for fraud, allegedly committed between December 1994 and February 1995. He appealed on the grounds that the judge was wrong to have decided that he was a fugitive from justice and due to the delay. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the judge had been entitled to reach the conclusion that the appellant was a fugitive and that the delay in dealing with the offences had been undesirable. Accordingly, the instant case was not one where it would be proportionate to return.
