*Zubkova v Polish Judicial Authority

Extradition – Extradition order. The respondent judicial authority sought the appellant Lithuanian national's extradition pursuant to a European Arrest Warrant so that she could stand trial in relation to an allegation of assisting an 'armed robbery', said to have occurred in 1996. The district judge ordered the appellant's extradition and she appealed. Allowing the appeal, the Administrative Court held that, in the circumstances, the judge had been wrong to conclude that it would not be unjust to order the appellant's extradition by reason of the passage of time under s 14 of the Extradition Act 2003.
