Chapter Summary

The procedure of extradition is itself complex and little understood and it is in that context that the fugitive's substantive rights operate. Procedural extradition must be placed within the wider perspective of mutual assistance in criminal matters of which it is a part. This chapter examines the procedure by which an extradition request is processed through the system in order to analyse critically its shortcomings and propose any necessary improvements and establishes the framework in which the transnational fugitive offender's protections are put into effect. INTERPOL has over 180 members worldwide, although eighty per cent of its telecommunications traffic is accounted by European inquiries. The chapter outlines the way an extradition request is processed, prior to consider in detail the nature of the hearing and the substantive matters the requesting State has to prove.
