2nd March 2017

Emilie Pottle successfully represented the Respondent in Czech Republic v Kolman [2017] EWHC 302, resisting the Czech Authorities' attempts to fills gaps in the evidence using the doctrine of 'judicial notice'. The case has important implication for extradition requests generally: the administrative court affirmed that judicial authorities must provide evidence to establish dual criminality and cannot require district judges to take 'judicial notice' of certain facts.
