Podolski v Provincial Court in Pulawy, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Poland was ordered to serve a sentence for stealing and domestic burglary committed in 2000 and 2001. The Polish court had suspended the term of two years' imprisonment for four years. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the appellant's extradition would be disproportionate due to the very long time after which to find that the original suspended sentence was to be activated and given the fact that the Polish authorities had decided that the offences had not merited an immediate custodial sentence.
