Westminster Magistrates’ Court hands down judgment in Alba Iulia Court Romania v FS


Westminster Magistrates’ Court has today ruled that a Romanian national, FS, will not be extradited on a European Arrest Warrant issued in November 2021. The Court accepted FS’s argument that the assurance provided by Romania as to conditions at Rahova prison during a 21-day quarantine period was inadequate. In the circumstances, the Court held there was a real risk that FS’s extradition would breach Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Robbie Stern was instructed by Robert Wong of JD Spicer Zeb to represent FS in this case.
