Spanish Judicial Authority v Arranz

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Spain for membership of a terrorist organisation. The Divisional Court, in allowing the appeal, held that the appellant's extradition was barred, under s 12A of the Extradition Act 2003, as the judicial authority had not shown that the sole reason for the decision to prosecute not having been made was the appellant's absence from Spain.
