XY v Public Prosecutor’s Office, Oost Nederland


[2019] EWHC 624 (Admin)
Dates of case

The Court allowed an appeal against extradition in relation to a UK citizen whose surrender was sought by a court in the Netherlands for an offence of armed robbery for which he had already served a sentence which was increased on an appeal.

Whilst in custody in that country he had been raped and was suffering from PTSD. Elisabeth Laing J found that it would be oppressive to order his extradition back to the place where the Dutch authorities had failed to protect him from such a traumatic experience.
