On Friday 24 February 2017 the Divisional Court allowed the extradition appeal of Obert v Greece.  Mr Obert was accused of handling a stolen car in Greece and Italy in 2002.  Greece had done nothing to prosecute the case since 2002 and no evidence was produced. Extradition was not requested until 2014 year after the evidence had been destroyed.  The case had also been discharged by Italy in 2015 as being time barred.  However, District Judge Snow still ordered extradition in August 2016.  The Divisional Court found that his decision was wrong and that given the passage of time it would be oppressive to extradite.  Ben Keith was instructed by Karen Todner at Kaim Todner Solicitors and led by Edward Fitzgerald QC.
