Extradition is the official process whereby one country transfers a suspected or convicted criminal to another country. Through the extradition process, one country (called the “requesting state”) typically makes a formal request to another country (the “requested state”). If the fugitive is found within the territory of the requested state, then the requested state may arrest the fugitive and subject him or her to its extradition process.
Extradition is a complex area of law and requires specialist legal expertise. Anyone wishing to fight extradition will have to show why they should not be extradited, often on the grounds that it is a breach of their human rights. Extradition can have an impact on a company’s interests as well as affecting individuals.
