Landmark Decision in Extradition to Romania & Italy

Stuart Miller Solicitors achieved a landmark ruling in the Court of Appeal in an Extradition case involving a Romanian national.

In short, owing to the hard work of specialist Extradition Solicitors at Stuart Miller Solicitors, the UK will no longer be able to extradite to Romania or Italy in cases were the defendant was convicted in absence. The Italian and Romanian authorities will need to amend their national legislation to bring them within the new Directive framework before any further such extraditions can take place.
