Kapri v HM Advocate (for the Republic of Albania)

Extradition – Judicial corruption – Right to fair trial. High Court of Justiciary: Refusing an appeal against an order for an appellant's extradition to his native Albania, he having been convicted in his absence of murder, the court held that there were no substantial grounds for believing that the level of corruption in the Albanian judicial system was at the 'systemic' level, or that there was a risk of the appellant being the subject of an unfair trial should he be extradited to Albania.
