Judgment of DJ Zani handed down in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 13/04/18 in extradition case of Bucharest Appeal Court, Romania v. Alexander Adamescu – the Court rejected all objections to extradition (politically motivated prosecution, A3 prison conditions and A6 )-  in an important ruling for extradition hearings, so-called expert evidence from Lord Carlile in the form of reports from SC Strategy held inadmissible as incapable of satisfying the test for admissibility in Bonython, and insofar as it was based on anonymous sources was in conflict with B & ors v. Westminster Magistrates’ Court [2015] AC 1195.  Tim Owen QC appeared for Romania.
