Wisniewski and others v Regional Court in Wroclaw, Poland and others

Extradition – Extradition order. The Divisional Court dismissed the appellants' appeals against orders for their extradition to Poland to serve activated suspended sentences. It gave guidance on the distinction between a person 'unlawfully at large', within s 14(b) of the Extradition Act 2003 and a 'fugitive', before finding that the appellants could not rely on the passage of time to bar their extradition. Further, their extradition would not be disproportionate to their rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
