EWHC 1224 (QB)
A copy of a court's judgment with an endorsement as to the fact that the sentence had come into force was, as part of the whole of the evidence, sufficient to show that an applicant had been unlawfully at large for the purpose of the Extradition Act 1989 s.9(8). There was insufficient evidence to show that the applicant had suffered ill-treatment at the hands of the Czech authorities in the past and that if he was returned he would suffer prejudice and discriminatory treatment by reason of his ethnicity. There was insufficient evidence that the applicant's return would be oppressive by virtue of the passage of time.
