Loncar v County Court in Vukovar (Croatia)

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Croatia to serve a sentence of four years' imprisonment for attempted murder committed in 1994. The Divisional Court, in allowing the appeal, having ignored the fresh evidence which it was sought to adduce, held that, on the facts found by the judge and the issues raised at the extradition hearing, it would be oppressive to extradite the appellant by reason of the passage of time. Accordingly, it was not necessary to consider the application to adduce fresh evidence.
