UK extradition arrangements: evidence given to the review panel

Copies of the documents provided to the panel reviewing the UK's extradition arrangements.


On 16 October 2012 the Home Secretary announced the government’s response to Sir Scott Baker’s independent review of the UK’s extradition arrangements. A copy of the Home Secretary’s oral ministerial statement to the House will be available shortly.

As promised by the Home Secretary, a copy of the evidence supplied to the review panel has also been published:

  • copies of the consultations invited by the panel - it should be noted that not all the organisations invited by the panel to make representations and listed in annex A of the report chose to do so; we have published all those representations that were received except those that have been published elsewhere
  • copies of the transcripts of the oral evidence sessions
  • copies of responses to the public consultation exercise - those representations received from contributors who did not wish for their submissions to be published have been withheld
  • copies of public views which were submitted

In due course, we will also be publishing details of all the information which is not published here, but which was considered by the Review Panel in reaching their conclusions.
