On 16th November 2017, in the case of District Court of Koszalin, Poland v Rafal Szpiec, heard at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, District Judge Inyundo discharged Mr Szpiec from the European Arrest Warrant that he faced. This was notwithstanding that it was a conviction warrant issued for Threats to Kill and multiple counts of Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm. The offences dated back to 2006 – 2008 and although Mr Szpiec, the Requested Person, was a fugitive, George argued that he had built a productive and blameless life in the UK since arriving here in 2008. Following powerful legal submissions, the District Judge agreed with George that to order extradition in this case would constitute a disproportionate interference in Mr Szpiec’s Article 8 rights to a private life. This was an incredible result given that (a) he was a fugitive, (b) it was a conviction warrant, and (c) he had a substantial custodial term of 18 months’ still outstanding.George continues to ruthlessly advance the interests of all of his clients to the fullest extent permissible within the law.
George was instructed by Magdalena Motyl of Bark & Co Solicitors.
