Abstract: 

On October 31, 2018, the judges of the Administrative Court of the Royal Court Department of the High Court, considered the applications of Pawel Lis, Dariusz Lange and Piotr Chmielewski, noting “general concern about changes that the independence of the judiciary in Poland influence”, but acknowledging that “given the current state of affairs, there is no reason to refuse extradition to Poland.”
