A Lithuanian national’s extradition was refused due to a disproportionate interference with their article 8 rights


Immigration, Asylum and Free Movement

Florence Iveson represented a Lithuanian national whose extradition to face trial in Lithuania for 8 fraud offences was refused today. Relying upon the evidence of two experts, Florence successfully argued that, due to serious ill health, extradition was a disproportionate interference with his article 8 rights and would be oppressive pursuant to section 25 of the Extradition Act 2003.

Florence was instructed by Poppy Ingall of Sonn Macmillan Walker Solicitors.
