Challenge to EAW on grounds it was contrary to ECHR and invalid

The court dismissed the appeals against the appellants’ extradition to Romania pursuant to European Arrest Warrants. The appellants had variously relied on ECHR, art 3 (prohibition of torture) and art 8 (right to respect for private and family life) and, in the case of the first appellant, an argument that the European Arrest Warrant seeking his surrender was invalid.

Mark Summers QC was involved in this case.
