On 23 May George Hepburne Scott was granted permission to appeal an Extradition Order that had been made at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. His client is a 52 year old woman who was unrepresented at Westminster. George appeared at the appeal hearing before Sir Ross Cranston sitting as a High Court judge and, following obviously persuasive submissions, was granted permission to appeal on the grounds that the judge agreed that it was reasonably arguable that there were ‘less coercive measures available’ to the requesting state, pursuant to section 21A(1)(c)(3) of the Extradition Act 2003. The case will now proceed to a full appeal hearing before the Administrative Court. George was instructed by Magdalena Motyl of Bark & Co Solicitors.
