Catherine Brown successful High Court extradition appeal under Article 8 of the ECHR

December 12, 2020

Catherine Brown has achieved significant success in an ‘Article 8’ High Court extradition appeal.  Her client was subject to an order for extradition to Latvia, for prosecution of historical fraud offences. On appeal, the High Court acceded to Catherine’s argument that  extradition would cause a disproportionate interference with her client’s family life in the UK, in violation of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Consequently, the appeal was allowed and the order for extradition was quashed.  You can see Catherine’s full profile here.
