Alison Young: Declaratory Orders and Constitutional Guardrails – UK Constitutional Law Association

Posted March 10th, 2022 in declarations of incompatibility, extradition, fraud, news by tracey

‘The recent decision of the Supreme Court in Craig v HM Advocate (for the Government of the United States of America) affirms the core constitutional expectation that the executive will comply with declaratory orders. On its face, this appears to be quite unassuming. Yet it raises fundamental issues of inter-institutional comity and the importance of constitutional guardrails and safeguards.’

Extradition under the EU–UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement – 5SAH

Posted April 9th, 2021 in brexit, chambers articles, extradition, news by sally

‘When the EU–UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) was reached between the UK and the EU on 24 December 2020, it gave extradition practitioners only a few days to identify what, if anything, would remain from the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) system before it came into force on 1 January 2021. The article starts by setting out how the EAW was implemented in the UK prior to 1 January 2021, before turning to the TCA itself and what it means for extradition or “surrender” between EU member states and the UK. In short, the EAW system no longer applies. The authors set out how the TCA provides a degree of continuity, now under the watchful eye of the UK–EU “Specialised Committee on Law Enforcement and Judicial Cooperation”. There are notable departures from the EAW system however, in both practical and legal terms, that open the door to increased scrutiny of extradition requests. The authors explore the impact these changes may have on the future of extradition with the EU27, to or from the UK.’

Assange cannot be extradited, but free speech arguments dismissed — an extended look – UK Human Rights Blog

‘In The Government of the United States v Julian Assange (2021), the District Judge sitting at Westminster Magistrates’ Court discharged the American extradition request against the founder of WikiLeaks because there is a substantial risk that he would commit suicide. Given Julian Assange’s political notoriety as an avowed whistle-blower, however, the judgment is significant for its dismissal of the defence’s free speech arguments. This article analyses why these human rights submissions were unsuccessful.’

Extradition – A Year in Review of 2020 – A look forward to 2021 – 5SAH

Posted January 8th, 2021 in appeals, chambers articles, extradition, human rights, news by sally

‘2020 has undoubtedly been a most unusual year, but in terms of the evolution of extradition caselaw it has been surprisingly still. As in previous years, extradition appeals have been dominated by Article 8 cases and challenges to European prison conditions. However, fewer extraditions than usual have actually taken place, and not for the obvious reasons (although coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused its own delays). Various challenges have led to large numbers of appeals being stayed pending outcomes of lead cases. Sharmistha Michaels and Rebecca Hill, barristers at Five St Andrew’s Hill, discuss the most important extradition judgments of 2020 and what to expect in 2021.’
