Examines the High Court of Justiciary ruling in Dean (Zain Taj) v Lord Advocate refusing leave to appeal a High Court decision to allow an appeal by a British national under the Extradition Act 2003 s.103 against the Scottish Ministers' decision to order his extradition to Taiwan and to quash the order on the basis that the conditions in which he would be held in Taipei prison would breach his ECHR art.3 rights, as no devolution issue of general public importance had been identified.
