A Divisional Court (Irwin LJ and Foskett J) has handed down judgment in the case of Govt of Rwanda v Nteziryayo and others [2017] EWHC 1912 (Admin). The case concerned the extradition of five individuals requested by the Rwandan Government in connection with the 1994 genocide. Mark Weekes acted for Celestine Mutabaruka, whose extradition was refused on grounds of double jeopardy and risk of a flagrant denial of justice.
