Starkings v Public Prosecutor's Office Monchengladbach, Germany

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Germany to stand trial for seven acquisitive offences on the basis that his daughter, born after his extradition was ordered, had been diagnosed with very serious health problems. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that, the present was one of those very rare cases where extradition could properly be avoided, given the absolute disastrous effect on his family if the appeal was to be dismissed.
