Mark Smith, a barrister in the 5SAH Extradition Team, secured a discharge of a Requested Person wanted to stand trial in Lithuania for an allegation of theft dating back to 2010.
DJ McGarva ordered discharge on proportionality and Article 8 grounds given that the Lithuanian prosecutor's office had refused to issue the EAW three times due to proportionality concerns, in which time the Requested Person had had two young sons.

Mark Smith was instructed by Sarah Phillips at McMillan Williams.

Mark specialises in crime, extradition, family and civil work.
