Kramek v Judicial Authority in Warsaw, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to face trial on two counts of obtaining for himself and assisting another to obtain a bank loan by false representation. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that oppression by reason of prejudicial delay was open to him because he was not a fugitive, and the extent of the unexplained delay was serious in the light of his age and family circumstances. Delay further made an appearance in the balance concerning art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which would not, of itself, have been sufficient.
