Pilich v District Court in Bielsko-Biala, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve a sentence of three years' imprisonment. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the first offence had contained sufficient particulars to satisfy the requirements of dual criminality, as it showed the offence of handling stolen goods. Further, the judge had come to the right conclusion as to art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, namely, that extradition would be a proportionate interference with his art 8 rights.
