Kowalski v District Court of Czestochowa, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant was convicted of an offence against his family in Poland and sentenced to a suspended sentence. He came to reside in the United Kingdom, where he worked and had a fiancée, with whom he had an 18 month old daughter. The respondent judicial authority sought the appellant's return to Poland to serve his sentence and the district judge made an order for his extradition. The appellant appealed. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the hardship which extradition would cause the appellant did not amount to exceptional hardship and that it was not sufficient to outweigh the public interest in extradition.
