Majchrzak v District Court in Poznan, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Poland was ordered to serve a sentence for theft committed in 2000. He appealed on the grounds that the judge had erred in finding that he had deliberately absented himself from the trial and delay. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the judge ought not to have been satisfied that the appellant had deliberately absented himself from the trial and extradition would be entirely wrong because it would be oppressive to return the appellant given the delay.
