AT v Prosecutor-General Office, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant's extradition to Luxembourg was ordered to serve the balance of a sentence of seven years' imprisonment imposed for serious sexual assaults on his half-sister. He appealed on the basis that the failure to provide a lawyer at the initial police interrogation in Luxembourg was a breach of art 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that there had been a violation of art 6 of the Convention. However, the breach had not resulted in a destruction of the very essence of the right to a fair trial or rendered the conviction unsafe.
