Wawrzyczek v District Court in Bielsko-Biala, Poland

Extradition – Extradition order. The appellant appealed against orders for his extradition to Poland to serve two years and six months' imprisonment for three offences of fraud. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that, as it had not been established that the appellant had been served with two summonses, it was not established that his absence from the trial had been deliberate. The appellant's extradition was barred, by virtue of s 20 of the Extradition Act 2003, because he would not be entitled to a retrial if returned.
