Mika v Judicial Authority of Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve an activated suspended sentence for burglary of items valued at approximately £50. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that it would not be proportionate to order the appellant's extradition. The important factors in the present case included: (i) the limited value of the items stolen; (ii) the appellant had been subjected to lengthy electronically monitored curfews; (iii) the length of his sentence and the fact that he had had no idea that the sentence had been activated; and (iv) the delay in seeking extradition.
