Miraszewski and others v District Court In Torun, Poland and another

Extradition – Extradition order. Three appeals against extradition to Poland were heard together because they raised, for the first time in the Divisional Court, common issues as to the compatibility of extradition with rights under the European Convention on Human Rights and the proportionality of extradition that arose under s 21A(1)(a) and (b) of the Extradition Act 2003. Having given extensive guidance on s 21A of the Act, the court held that the appellants' extradition was not incompatible with their rights under art 8 of the Convention and was proportionate within the meaning of s 21A(1)(b) of the Act.
