Regina v Hull [2011] EWCA Crim 1261; [2011] WLR (D) 177

“Under section 3 of the Repatriation of Prisoners Act 1984 the Court of Appeal had jurisdiction, including power to quash the order of the High Court, in relation to a referral under section 273 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 of the sentence of a repatriated prisoner. In relation to a sentence of life imprisonment, adapting the sentence, as far as possible to bring correspondence between the punishment which would have been imposed in the sentencing state and (the remainder of) the sentence to be served in the administering state, required a reasoned judgment as to the likely duration of the custodial element of the sentence had the sentence been served in the sentencing state.”
