Gorka v District Court in Grzegorz, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Poland was ordered to serve a sentence for fraud and to face trial for attempted robbery. He appealed, relying on the effect which extradition would have on his partner and their young son. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that, notwithstanding the nature of the offences, extradition would be disproportionate. That was because of the very severe effect which it would have on the mental well-being of the appellant's partner, coupled with the effect that that would have on the welfare of his young child, whose care from his mother could be significantly affected.
