R (on the application of FOUAD KHALED JAFFAR) (Claimant) v SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Defendant) & SPAIN (Interested Party) (2013)

PUBLISHED April 11, 2013

[2013] EWHC 813 (Admin)

The decision of the Secretary of State for the Home Department to allow extradition of a United Kingdom citizen to Spain, where he had been charged with co-defendants who had already been found guilty of massive fraud, had been reasonable. The proceedings against him regarding offences committed 22 years earlier had been brought within the Spanish limitation period, and extradition was not unjust or oppressive.
