The case of Polish Judicial Authority v MM was heard at the Administrative Court on 25th October 2017 before Sir Wyn Williams sitting as a High Court Judge. George Hepburne Scott appeared for the Appellant. Following submissions, the Court quashed the order for extradition made at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and ordered the Appellant’s discharge so she will not now be returned to serve the balance of her sentence for Attempted Murder. George mounted a powerful and persuasive Article 8 bar to extradition which ultimately succeeded and secured this young mothers’ release. The learned judge complimented both Counsel for the manner of their submissions.

 

George was instructed by Magdalena Motyl of Bark & Co Solicitors
