The Case

The district judge had not erred in ordering the extradition of the appellant to Spain to face charges arising out of a false credit card and false passport; the appellant had not spent sufficient time in the United Kingdom to render his return unjust and oppressive, and he had not changed his lifestyle, having been before the courts in the UK on numerous occasions since arriving.
