Extradition and the Polish judiciary.

Arnell, Paul


Paul Arnell


This article discusses the rulings in Circuit Court of Warszawa-Praga v Maciejec (Sh Ct) and Regional Court in Bielsko-Biala, Poland v Charyszyn (Ch Ct) in which Polish nationals, subject to extradition order requests, argued that there was the appearance of a lack of independence in the Polish judicial system and they would not receive a fair trial. The paper considers the potential impact of Brexit on extradition.
