Lloyds PR Solicitors successfully challenged the extradition of ‘AB’ to Armenia, where he was wanted to stand trial for theft and money laundering offences as part of an organised criminal group.

His extradition was opposed on the basis that, as a bisexual man, he would be subject to inhuman or degrading treatment in an Armenian prison. After hearing from three defence experts on the treatment of LGBTQ+ people in prison and specifically Armenian prison conditions, the judge found in favour of our client and ruled that if extradited, there was a real risk of breaching his Article 3 and 6 human rights under the European Convention of Human Rights.

The case was headed by Harsha Rupasinghe (partner) and Thomas Ashbey (solicitor).
