Pesut v Republic of Croatia

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against the judge's decision sending his case to the Secretary of State for her decision whether the appellant was to be extradited in order to face trial for the war crime of shooting dead a civilian in 1991. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that it would not be unjust to extradite the appellant due to the passage of time and it would not be oppressive to extradite him on the basis of his physical and mental condition.
