Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of SOLTYSIAK) v POLAND (2011)

PUBLISHED March 23, 2011

[2011] EWHC 1347 (Admin)

An individual whose extradition was sought by Poland for copyright offences was entitled to argue on appeal that they were not extradition offences, even though that issue had not been raised before the magistrates' court. The court was not satisfied that the charges on the European arrest warrant amounted to extradition offences as defined by the Extradition Act 2003 s.64 and that dual criminality was met in respect of those offences.
