Extradition

Extradition is where another country seeks the surrender of a ‘requested person’ in order prosecute them for a criminal offence or if already convicted of criminal offence, either to serve a sentence or to be sentenced.

 

If the requesting state is a member of the EU then extradition is sought by use of an ‘European Arrest Warrant’ (EAW), usually issued by a court or prosecutor, which is then certified by the National Crime Agency. Once an EAW has been certified the person wanted under the EAW is then liable to arrest by any police officer. After arrest they will be detained by local police and transported to Westminster Magistrates’ Court for the next court session.

 

Extradition can be a very stressful and complicated process. Bail could be granted but it will depend on the circumstances of each case. Those requested persons who have strong ties to the UK, such as family, especially children in the UK, have worked here for a number of years, have been registered with the tax authorities, or have lived at the same address for a number of years are more likely to be granted bail. However if the offence for which a person is requested is a serious offence likely to carry a lengthy sentence of imprisonment or a substantial prison sentence has already been imposed or the person has deliberately fled from the requesting  country or has used a false ID in this country they are less likely to be granted bail.

 

If bail is granted the court will usually require that a substantial cash security is deposited with the court, this can vary from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds depending on the means of the requested person and the degree of risk that they will fail to attend court.

 

Extradition is a particularly fast-moving area of law that is constantly being re-shaped by new judgments and legislative amendments. The proceedings are complex and it is essential to instruct a firm with the experience and expertise to recognise the correct arguments to use in defending a warrant or request. Often it is necessary, whist defending an EAW, either to try and compromise proceedings in the requesting country or to obtain evidence, often from court records, as to what has happened. A multilingual practice is essential in order to properly assist with these tasks.

 

AM International Solicitors has a dedicated extradition department and a team of solicitors who regularly deal with extradition cases at both Magistrates’ Court and High Court level.

 

We have a reputation for tenaciously pursuing cases in the Appellate Courts and have numerous cases were Appellants have been discharged on appeal. We take pride in pursuing every avenue of challenge to an EAW and we work closely with the top extradition barristers in London. We also have an excellent understanding of how to use expert evidence successfully and a catalogue of specialist expert witnesses including child psychologists, psychiatrists, anti-trafficking organisations and experts on foreign prison conditions.

 

We undertake work both privately and on a publicly funded basis, and we will be happy to speak with you about whether Legal Aid is available for your case. If you have an extradition matter please contact us to discuss how we can help.

 

We speak your language.

Further changes mean that the maximum custodial period that may be served by an offender who defaults on payment of a confiscation order over £10 million will increase from five years to 14 years. There can be further consequences such a sorders forcing sale of jointly owned assets, often a matrimonial home.

 

We represent defendants facing complex confiscation cases, also with an international element, arising out of convictions for a wide range of offences such as fraud, money laundering, drug importation and supply and tax evasion.
