What is Extradition Law?
Extradition Law covers the transfer of a person who has been accused or convicted of a Criminal Offence in a country outside of the UK. The individual’s transfer could be sought to stand trial or to serve a sentence that has already been imposed by the requesting country. Extradition proceedings can be difficult and distressing whilst the impact on the individual and their family can be extremely severe.
This is one of the most complex and fast-changing areas of Criminal Law, and it is one in which our expert solicitors specialise in. Extradition is not a formality for us, we will use all our resources and legal skills to challenge any arrest warrant by identifying and instructing all types of experts to best assist your case.
We will always fight for the best possible outcome whatever the circumstances and be at your side throughout as instructed solicitors.
The Extradition Act
The Extradition Act (2003) came into force on the 1st of January 2004 and covers all import (from the UK) and export (to the UK) requests submitted or received from this date forward.
