*Prendi (aka Kola) v Government of the Republic of Albania

Extradition – Extradition order. The issue for determination was whether the judge had erred in admitting an Interpol 'red notice', which was not duly authenticated under the Extradition Act 2003. The Divisional Court held that the correct test was whether a document, not authenticated under s 202(3) of the Act, was admissible as evidence of the facts stated in it according to the English rules of criminal evidence. It allowed the appellant's appeal against the judge's decision to send his case to the Secretary of State, as the red notice had been inadmissible and it could not be proved that the appellant was the requested person.
