Tomaszewicz v Regional Court in Bialystock, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Poland was ordered to serve a sentence for attempted burglary committed in March 1996, and to face trial for appropriation and stealing, allegedly committed in February 1998 and July 2000. He appealed on grounds including delay. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that return would be disproportionate, taking into account the nature of the offences in question and of the substantial delay, coupled with the problems relating to his wife's mental condition and the needs of his child.
