George Hepburne-Scott Achieves Another Extradition Victory in the High Court

George Hepburne-Scott won another case in the High Court on 22 June 2021.

The Appellant in the case of FT v Hungary was discharged on 22 June 2021. The appeal had been lodged in December 2019 and had then been stayed behind various leading cases relating to prison conditions in Hungary. These culminated in the Supreme Court authority of Zabolotnyi v Hungary UKSC 2019/0210. Thereafter the case was listed for a renewal hearing before Cavanagh J on 10 June 2021. At that hearing, George persuaded the Court to allow the appeal in respect of one EAW. Following this hearing, the Hungarian judicial authority conceded the other EAW and the Appellant was completely discharged on 22 June 2021.

George was instructed by Magdalena Motyl of Bark & Co Solicitors
