Florence Iveson lead by David Josse QC in Bulgarian Article 3 appeal.
On 14 March 2017 the Divisional Court heard 3 joined cases in which the Appellants sought to argue that Bulgaria would not comply with its Article 3 assurance. Florence Iveson, with the help of the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee and co-defending legal team, found evidence to establish that the Bulgarian authorities breached their assurance in respect of the first extraditee who was made subject to it. After the issuing of a renewed assurance by the Bulgarian Judicial Authority, Florence and the team were able, to demonstrate further serious breaches. The Divisional Court has reserved its judgment.
