Kapoor v Government of India

Extradition – Extradition hearing. The appellant appealed against the judge's decision that his case should be sent to the Secretary of State for her decision whether to order his extradition to India. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the judge had been entitled to conclude that there had been a prima facie case and to have rejected the appellant's abuse of process argument. Further, there was no basis for interfering with the judge's conclusion that there would be no risk of breach of art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights and extradition would not be disproportionate with respect to art 8 of the Convention.
