Practice and Procedure

HH v ITALY : PH v ITALY : FK v POLAND (2012)

PUBLISHED June 20, 2012

[2012] UKSC 25

The Supreme Court considered, in the light of its decisions in Norris v United States [2010] UKSC 9, [2010] 2 A.C. 487 and ZH (Tanzania) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2011] UKSC 4, [2011] 2 A.C. 166, proceedings under the Extradition Act 2003 where the rights of children of the defendant under the European Convention on Human Rights art.8 were arguably engaged. The need to examine the way the process would interfere with the children's best interests was just as great in extradition cases as it was in cases of immigration control.
