Oreszczynsi v Krakow District Court Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to face trial for thefts dating from 2002. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that there had been a culpable delay of four years due to failure to make inquiries of the Home Office as to the appellant's contact details. Given that delay coupled with the eight year passage of time since the alleged offences, the appellant had established that to order his return would be a disproportionate and unjustified interference with his rights and those of his family under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
