National Legal Service Solicitors successfully represented person resisting extradition to Lithuania

Extradition Solicitor Noam Almaz, Trainee Solicitor, Sarah Moulange and Paralegal, Shyan MacTavish represented B, a 30-year-old Lithuanian man wanted to serve a long prison sentence for fraud and a serious assault committed when he was 19.

Noam first represented B in 2012 – 2013 – when he successfully argued that the extradition request was void because it had been issued by the Minister of Justice of Lithuania, rather than a court.  Noam was the first to identify this point of law and Lithuanian requests are no longer issued in the same way as a result.

Noam and Sarah represented B for a second time in 2018, again securing his discharge.  By this point, B had further established himself in this country and had started a family.

In 2019, Lithuania sought B’s extradition for the third time.  Sarah Moulange, working with Shyan MacTavish, built a powerful evidential case demonstrating that B should not be extradited, in part because of the arduous legal proceedings over the previous 8 years. The court accepted that the consequences of extradition would be exceptionally severe and he was discharged.
