Paul Arnell


Discusses Craig (James) v HM Advocate (HCJ Appeal), refusing an appeal by a UK resident, who was the subject of an extradition request by the US government, against a sheriff's decision to order his extradition, notwithstanding the illegality of the failure by the UK Government to bring the forum bar provisions under the Crime and Courts Act 2013 into force in Scotland.
