“In the light of the presumption that Poland, as a member state of the Council of Europe, was able and willing to fulfil its obligations under the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, in the absence of clear, cogent and compelling evidence to the contrary, a strict approach would in future be adopted in deciding appeals against orders for extradition to Poland under European arrest warrants where the sole issue was whether extradition would constitute a breach of article 3 of the Convention by reason of prison conditions in that state.”
