Hilali v Governor of Whitemoor Prison

House of Lords

“Where there was a right of appeal under Part 1 of the Extradition Act 2003 to appeal against an extradition order, habeas corpus was excluded by section 34; it would be contrary to the principle of mutual recognition to which the Act gave effect to grant habeas corpus on the ground of a change of circumstances.”
