- Crime and Regulatory Law
- Queen’s Bench Division (Administrative Court)
The appellant contended that the first European Arrest Warrant (EAW) issued was not a warrant under the Extradition Act 2003, s 2, and that the new EAW was unfair as she would be prevented from submitting any evidence in response. Also, the existence of two EAWs had meant the Judicial Authority had usurped the court’s process and it was additionally argued that extradition was disproportionate. The appeal was dismissed.
Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
