*McIntyre v Government of the United States of America and another

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to the United States to face trial for conspiracy to defraud. He contended that the circumstances fulfilled s 108(7) of the Extradition Act 2003, as it would be a real injustice for him to be extradited with a high risk of suicide and untreated post-traumatic stress disorder when the issue had not previously been properly put before the court. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that there had been no exceptional circumstances in relation to matters that should have been raised and there was no injustice.
