Dubai Court of Cassation upholds the Court of Appeal’s decision to grant Denmark’s request for extradition
The Dubai Court of Cassation has rejected Sanjay Shah’s appeal to reverse the decision to extradite him to Denmark.
Shah, a British national wanted by Danish authorities, was arrested by Dubai Police in response to Denmark’s extradition petition, and his extradition was referred to the Dubai Courts by the Attorney General.
Although the Dubai Courts initially rejected Denmark’s extradition request, Chancellor Essam Issa Al Humaidan, Attorney General of Dubai, appealed the decision in accordance with the Law of International Judicial Cooperation. He announced that the Dubai Court of Cassation has now upheld the decision to extradite the suspect to Denmark.
