In a recent extradition hearing MW Extradition Solicitor Ruta Mikailaite instructed Barrister Jonathan Swain of 9 Bedford Row to defend a client sought by the Hungarian authorities.
In court we opposed an application by the Judicial Authority for additional time to obtain an adequate assurance and further information given the significant failure to progress the case which was already well outside the 90 day timeframe under the Framework Decision.
The District Judge agreed with the submissions made on behalf of the requested person, and refused the application by the Judicial Authority. Absent an assurance, the District Judge ordered the discharge of the requested person.
There is to be no appeal against the decision.
