George Hepburne Scott Instructed in Landmark High Court Case Defining the Post-Brexit UK-EU Extradition Arrangements

On 4 May 2022, judgment was handed down in the case of Lucian Florin Badea v Romanian Judicial Authority [2022] EWHC 1025 (Admin).  This judgment provides a thorough analysis of the effect of the specific provisions of the Trade and Co-Operation Agreement between the UK and the EU within extradition law in the UK. The Appellant submitted that the effect of this international instrument was analogous to the preceding EU Framework Decisions concerning the European Arrest Warrants (EAW’s). Fordham J considered the case in light of the following authorities: Konecny v Czech Republic [2019] UKSC 8, 1 WLR 1586; Polakowski v Westminster Magistrates’ Court [2021] EWHC 53 (Admin) 1 WLR 2521 & Saptelei v Romania [2021] EWHC 66 (Admin) [2021] RTR 484.
