On 18 January 2016, District Judge Baraitser discharged Ms Gebhardt from a Polish extradition request on Article 8 grounds. Ms Gerbhardt was requested to serve a two year sentence for an offence of fraud dating back to 1998, which was activated in 2005. Ms Gebhardt had since moved to Germany and is now sole carer for her 8-year-old daughter. The District Judge found that extradition would be a disproportionate interference with Ms Gebhardt's and her daughter's family rights. Barrister Mark Smith was instructed by Diane Buck at Edwins Solicitors.
