Rule of Law – Impact of legislative amendments in Poland on extradition

8th June 2018

Myles Grandison (Appellant) and Benjamin Seifert (Respondent) were led juniors in the lead case before a Divisional Court consisting of Lord Burnett LCJ, Irwin LJ and Ouseley J.

The Court heard argument as to whether the recent changes to the rule of law in Poland could lead to a breach of Article 6 ECHR and whether the courts that issued the European Arrest Warrants would now satisfy the definition of a ‘Judicial Authority’.

The Court has reserved its judgment.
