||Julian Knowles (instructed by Corter Binning) for the applicant.
||James Lewis QC (instructed by the Crown Prosecution Service) for the prosecution.

Extradition - Fugitive offender - Order for return to requesting country - Circumstances rendering it unjust or oppressive to return fugitive - Passage of time - Applicant building up commercial interests whilst aware of request for his extradition - Applicant having dependent sick adult daughter - Whether unjust or unreasonable to return applicant - s 11(3)(b).
In all the circumstances, since the applicant knew before he developed his business interests in the United Kingdom that Italy was requesting his extradition, and since his dependant sick adult daughter would suffer no prejudice if she had to return to Italy, it was not unjust or oppressive by reason of the passage of time to extradite him.
