Consultation description

This consultation is of interest to the police, the legal profession and civil liberties organisations. It seeks views on 2 draft codes of conduct for the police about extradition processes.

The consultation seeks views from practitioners and other interested parties as to whether the draft codes are correct and applicable for operational demands, while protecting the rights of individuals sought for extradition.

The drafts consist of:

  • a revision of existing codes of practice that govern the exercise of police powers in UK extradition cases (ie where the UK is arresting, transporting or detaining an individual subject to a valid extradition request)
  • a new code of practice relating to transit cases when a person is being extradited from one territory to another (and where neither territory is the UK) and is in transit through the UK
