Marian v Regional Prosecutor's Office of Ruse, Bulgaria

Extradition – Private and family life. Given the nature of the alleged offences, the passage of time, the fact that the appellant had been the victim of trafficking, his mental health and vulnerability, and the real problems he would face if he were sent to Bulgaria, the present was a case where returning him to Bulgaria for the offences would involve a disproportionate effect on his right to respect for private life. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the appellant's appeal against orders for his extradition to Bulgaria to face trial for two alleged offences of breach of the law on trademarks.
