Where a delay had occurred in extradition proceedings, resulting from the fleeing of the accused from the jurisdiction in which he was bailed to appear, he could not rely on any subsequent culpable delay on the part of the requesting state to argue that it would be unjust or oppressive to extradite him by reason of passage of time pursuant to the Extradition Act 2003 s.82. The case of Krzyzowski v Poland (2007) EWHC 2754 (Admin), (2008) Extradition LR 19 correctly stated the law on the passage of time bar to extradition, Goodyer v Trinidad and Tobago (2007) EWHC 2012 (Admin), (2007) Extradition LR 271 overruled.
