Robert has developed substantial experience defending and prosecuting in extradition proceedings.

He regularly prosecutes Extradition matters at Westminster Magistrates Court, and is a member of the specialist Extradition Panel at Grade 2.

He has represented requested persons at first instance at the Magistrates’ Court and at appeal hearings at the High Court. He has acted in cases involving a broad range of issues: from Article 8, to Romanian prison conditions, to abuse of process.

Notable Cases:

Estonian Judicial Authority v R

Romanian Judicial Authority v R

Client discharged following appeal to the High Court in a case involving Article 8 and Article 3 of the ECHR.

Spanish Judicial Authority v M

Represented a British national requested by the Spanish authorities in relation to a credit card fraud.  The Spanish Judicial Authority withdrew the warrant.
