Chambers has developed a specialist extradition team to act on behalf of Requesting States, Requested Persons and the Secretary of State in Part 1 and 2 cases.
Members of chambers appear both at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and in the appellate courts in cases involving a broad range of challenges to extradition requests.
Recent instructions have included challenges under Article 3 in relation to Romanian prison conditions, and arguments involving abuse of process, double jeopardy and delay.
Members of chambers have also been instructed in cases involving a CEO accused of fraud in the United Arab Emirates, a man convicted of murder in absentia in Italy and extraditions to the USA and Russia.
Junior members of chambers have gained experience of prosecution by completing secondments to the CPS Extradition Unit.
