Celczynski v Poland [2019] EWHC 3450 (Admin) and [2020] 4 WLUK 327

05 May 2020

Ben Joyes appeared on behalf of Poland in this case, which considered the extent of the High Court’s judicial review jurisdiction in extradition proceedings. The High Court confirmed that judicial review is available to correct illegality in exceptional cases where the court does not have jurisdiction to deal with that illegality under the appeal provisions of the Extradition Act 2003. An application to certify a point of law to the Supreme Court was refused by Dove J on 30 April 2020.
