Saleh and another v Regional Court at Lille, France

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to France to serve a sentence of seven years' imprisonment for participation in a criminal organisation, and facilitation of unauthorised entry and residence. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the judge had been entitled to conclude that the appellant's extradition would not be oppressive on the basis that there was a high risk that he would commit serious acts of self-harm, including suicide. Further, the appellant's extradition would not amount to a disproportionate interference in his or his family's rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
