Ilia v Appeal Court in Athens (Greece)

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant former Greek judge appealed against orders for her extradition to Greece. The Divisional Court, in dismissing two outstanding grounds of appeal, held that, on the basis of reliable assurances from the judicial authority, there were not substantial grounds for concluding that there was a real risk that the appellant's rights under art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights would be infringed. Further, the present case was not one of the rare ones where art 8 of the Convention would be a bar to extradition, even though the appellant had a short sentence left to serve and had been subject to periods of curfew.
