“In the context of the Extradition Act 2003, through interpretation of article 6 of Council Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA of 13 June 2002 on the European arrest warrant and the surrender procedures between member states (‘the Framework Decision’) and recognising differences of terminology used among member states, a ‘judicial authority’ was not confined to a judge who adjudicated, but could extend to a body that prosecuted.”
