Public Prosecutor's Office Bavaria, Germany v Khan and other cases

Extradition – Extradition order. The judicial authority sought the defendants' extradition to face trial for fraud and tax evasion offences. The district judge discharged the first and second defendants' European arrest warrants (EAW), but ordered the third defendant's extradition. The judicial authority and third defendant appealed. The Administrative Court held that the EAWs failed to establish the defendants were 'accused persons', under s 2(3) of the Extradition Act 2003 and were insufficiently particular, under s 2(4)(c) of the Act. Accordingly, the discharge of the first and second defendants' EAWs would be upheld and the third defendant's EAW would be discharged.
