"(1) In this paragraph, 'the Act' means the Extradition Act 2003.
(2) Appeals to the High Court under the Act must be brought in the Administrative Court of the Queen's Bench Division.
(3) Where an appeal is brought under section 26 or 28 of the Act –
(a) the appellant's notice must be filed and served before the expiry of 7 days, starting with the day on which the order is made;
(b) the appellant must endorse the appellant's notice with the date of the person's arrest;
(c) the High Court must begin to hear the substantive appeal within 40 days of the person's arrest; and
(d) the appellant must serve a copy of the appellant's notice on the Crown Prosecution Service, if they are not a party to the appeal, in addition to the persons to be served under rule 52.4(3) and in accordance with that rule."
"... on exceptional facts (eg where the respondent was evading service), the court might well order that service could be effected in a way that may well lead to the notice not being received by the respondent within the 7-day period, or even - conceivably - at all."
