ABSTRACT
The article discusses the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights on the case Soering v. United Kingdom. The conflict surrounds the applicability of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) wherein extradition of persons who are subjected to torture or inhuman and degrading punishment is a violation. The House of Lords ruled that the appellant will be extradited despite his criminal life imprisonment punishment that violated Article 3 of ECHR.
