Extradition - Proceedings - Application for habeas corpus - Passage of time since offence committed - Trivial nature of offences - Unjustness and oppressiveness of extradition.
In the circumstances, given the relative triviality of the alleged offences and the time which had elapsed since they were committed, it would be oppressive and unjust to return the applicant to the Czech Republic and, accordingly, his application for a writ of habeas corpus would be allowed.
