House of Lords: Extradition report published

23 March 2015

The House of Lords Select Committee on Extradition Law published its report on 10 March 2015. The committee received written evidence and held 16 sessions of live evidence from a number of witnesses, including members of parliament and the judiciary, NGOs and leading extradition lawyers.

The Committee heard evidence from Rebecca Niblock on 15 October 2014. The Committee was established in March 2014 to conduct post-legislative scrutiny into the law and practice relating to extradition. It concluded that while many of the UK’s existing arrangements are satisfactory, the system of seeking, accepting and monitoring assurances during the extradition process is such that it cannot guarantee the UK is meeting its human rights obligations.
