Since roughly the start of 2014, costs have been awarded more frequently in Extradition Cases before Westminster Magistrates Court following the Senior District Judge encouraging the CPS to apply under section 60 of the Extradition Act 2003.

The Court of Appeal (CA) held that it was not permissible for the court to make orders requiring three non-party family members (one a minor) of a Mother who had taken her child without permission out of the jurisdiction to lodge their passports with the court. The CA further allowed the appeal against orders endorsed with an unenforceable penal notice requiring a minor to attend court with further information and against findings made as to that child's candour.
