Extradition to Greece banned


Edward Fitzgerald QC represented two appellants in an important extradition case against the Greek government. Edward represented both Marku and Murphy leading juniors Benjamin Seifert and Daniel Jones.


The court held that the extradition could not take place because of the dangerous conditions in Korydallos Men’s Prison and Nafplio Prison. This is an important decision because it is based on the risk of inter-prisoner violence and in that respect brings a new dimension to the directive of Article 3.
