*Kandola and others v Generalstaatwaltschaft Frankfurt, Germany and others

Extradition – Extradition order. Three appeals against extradition orders were heard together because they raised a common issue concerning the new extradition bar contained in s 12A of the Extradition Act 2003. The Divisional Court gave guidance on the application of s 12A of the Act and quashed the extradition orders against two appellants, as the judicial authorities had not proved that the sole reason for not making the decisions to charge and try them was their absence from the territory. The third appellant's further challenges based on insufficient particulars and dual criminality were rejected.
