Extradition Extradition hearing. The Administrative Court held that the district judge had been correct to refuse the appellant's request for a further adjournment of her extradition hearing and to order the appellant's extradition; thus giving effect to the respondent's request, pursuant to the extradition warrant, for the appellant to serve an outstanding sentence of imprisonment which had been imposed following her conviction in absentia for an offence contrary to s282 of the Hungarian Criminal Code, i.e. without authorisation, 'any person who offers or supplies narcotic drugs or is engaged in distributing, trafficking or dealing narcotic drugs'.
