Westminster Magistrates Court has today 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 instructed by Will Bergstrom of Taylor Rose to represent Mr Chukov in this case.
