Extradition News

Kathryn Howarth appears in the Divisional Court for an extradition appeal in which guidance on the new temporary transfer provisions under section 21B of the Act will be given.

24th November 2015

Kathryn Howarth represented the Spanish judicial authority in the case of Duncan v Presiding Magistrate of Malaga, Spain. Extradition had been ordered by the District Judge at first instance, who also refused an application made on behalf of the requested person under section 21B of the Act. A Divisional Court comprised of Beatson LJ and Cranston J considered detailed submissions on the new temporary transfer provisions and reserved their judgment, which will be handed down in writing at a later date.
