On 30 July 2014 the Divisional Court gave judgment in the extradition case of Florea v Romania  EWHC 2528 (Admin). The case found that prison conditions in Romania are so overcrowded that it is not possible to extradite people there without Romania providing guarantees about the conditions that accused and convicted persons will be held in or there would be a breach of Article 3 ECHR. This is the second case where an EU prison system has been found to be systemically overcrowded, and will prevent extradition to a large number of Romanian prisons unless Romania provide specific guarantees. David Josse Q.C. and Ben Keith were instructed by Sharon Toor at Virdees Solicitors. The judgment can be found here.
