Glab v District Court Second Penal Division of Aamosc, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to face sentences for possession of drugs and appropriating an identity document. The Administrative Court held that the identity document offence had not amounted to the offence under s 25 of the Identity Cards Act 2006, let alone any offence involving dishonesty. Accordingly, that particular offence had not been an extradition offence and the appellant would not be returned in relation to it. However, without the identity document offence there was time to be served and there was no reason for a decision that return would be disproportionate.
