International Crime & Extradition
The international climate is changing, upon our departure from the EU.
Extradition is the formal process adopted to request the surrender of requested persons from one jurisdiction to another for 3 purposes:
- To enable the prosecution of the requested person – to be prosecuted.
- To be sentenced for an offence for which the person has already been convicted.
- For the person to carry out a sentence already imposed.
The international climate is changing, upon our departure from the EU. Inevitably, it is becoming more and more commonplace the issue of arrest warrants, Interpol red notices which is a request to locate and provisionally arrest a requested person pending a full extradition application. Needless to say, such warrants have the effect of restricting the freedom of a person and inevitably deprivation of liberty.
