Kathryn Howarth succeeds in obtaining the discharge of a Romanian EAW
Kathryn Howarth succeeds in obtaining the discharge of a Romanian EAW before District Judge Baraitser. Issues at the extradition hearing included section 2, Article 3 (prison conditions – concerning the conditions in Focsani prison) and Article 8. The section 2 issue was hotly contested by counsel for the prosecution, who argued that the authority of Edutanu v Romania  EWHC 124 (Admin) did not apply. Kathryn persuaded the judge otherwise and she discharged the entire EAW. The CPS have elected not to appeal. Kathryn was instructed by Sean Caulfield at Hodge, Jones and Allen solicitors.
