The Case

Extradition Extradition order. Further information from the respondent judicial authority provided that the appellant was accused, not convicted, of blackmail pending his appeal against conviction in Hungary and he would have a full trial in the appellate court. Accordingly, the Divisional Court dismissed his appeal against orders for his extradition, since the premise which formed the starting point for the appellant's arguments as to why he should be regarded as a convicted person was rejected.
