The Case

Extradition Extradition hearing. The appellant's extradition to Germany was ordered for 16 alleged offences of organised armed robbery. He appealed on the basis that the European arrest warrant had not contained adequate particulars. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the statutory requirements had been adequately met. The appellant's alleged role had been clear, a fairly narrow gap of time had been given and failure to give specific addresses of each offence had not made the warrant invalid.
