Reports on recent extradition cases, namely: Dean (Zain Taj) v Lord Advocate (SC) on whether the extradition of a UK citizen to Taiwan to serve a custodial sentence would give rise to a breach of his rights under ECHR art.3 due to the perceived risk of his ill-treatment from other prisoners; and the ECtHR decision in Harkins v United Kingdom (71537/14) on whether the imposition of a US mandatory life sentence breached art.3.
