- Westminster Magistrates’ Court
Westminster Magistrates Court ruled that a Bulgarian national, Stanislaw Chukov, will not be extradited on a European Arrest Warrant issued in August 2019. The warrant outlined three offences, but the court ruled that the most serious offence was not an extradition offence, and discharged Mr Chukov on the basis that he had an established private life in the UK which outweighed the public interest in extradition.
Florence Iveson was involved in this case.
