*Szegfu v Court of Pecs Hungary

Extradition – Extradition order. In the first case in which the reach of s 26(5) of the Extradition Act 2003 was considered, the Divisional Court gave guidance on its application. It then held that the applicant's appeal against his extradition to Hungary to serve 30 months' imprisonment was out of time. There had been no satisfactory explanation for the week's delay following the drafting of the notice of appeal and the delay had demonstrated that the applicant had not done everything reasonably possible to ensure that the notice had been lodged with the court as soon as it could have been.
