Man walking past railings

Kane Sharpe secures the discharge of JG, a requested person facing extradition to Poland to serve a 2-year prison sentence.

Extradition was resisted with arguments made under two limbs: the first relating to infringement of JG’s and his daughter’s rights under Article 8 ECHR (disproportionate interference with family life in the UK); the second that JG’s physical health was such that it would render his extradition ‘oppressive’ (section 25 EA 2003). The latter is known for being a very high bar.

District Judge Branston accepted Kane’s arguments, refusing extradition expressly under both limbs.

Kane was instructed and expertly assisted by Stephen Davies of Tuckers Solicitors.
