Sedzikowski v District Court in Torun, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve a sentence of one year imprisonment for fraud. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that, for the appellant to go to Poland to be released in a matter of a very few weeks would be wholly disproportionate, bearing in mind the 14 years that had elapsed since the offence and, more particularly, that he had not gone without punishment because he had served a substantial term of imprisonment in the United Kingdom.
