[2006] EWHC 2826 (QB)

As the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons 1983 prohibited a state to which a life prisoner was transferred from aggravating the penal position of the prisoner, the court was prevented from imposing a minimum term in excess of that imposed on the prisoner by the trial judge. In the circumstances, a minimum term of 10 years was set in respect of the life prisoner.
