Results 1–20 of 300 for extradition act 2003

Attorney General: No-deal Brexit: Priorities (3 Oct 2019)

Geoffrey Cox: The hon. Gentleman is quite right; there are some countries that will not extradite their own citizens. In those cases it is a case of bilateral discussion with them. There is the existing Extradition Act 2003, but if they will not extradite citizens, there is of course the option of trying them in that country. That is generally the option that those countries offer in connection with their...

Written Answers — Home Office: Extradition (24 Jun 2019)

Nick Hurd: When deciding whether to certify an extradition request, the Secretary of State follows the following criteria as set out in Section 70 of the 2003 Extradition Act: - (1) The Secretary of State must issue a certificate under this section if he receives a valid request for the extradition to a category 2 territory of a person who is in the United Kingdom.

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...point was made by the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee, at whose request the Government produced a second, revised Explanatory Memorandum in addition to both the original one and the impact assessment published alongside the instrument. The noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, has been consistent on the committee’s comments; he made the same point today as he did the other day. I took it on...

Human Rights in the UK — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (13 Feb 2019)

Tommy Sheppard: described as absolute in her commitment to the current human rights legislative framework in this country. When the Prime Minister was Home Secretary, she sought to undermine the Human Rights Act 1998 by suggesting that it was in some way soft on terrorists. It is also worth noting that when she stood to be leader of the Conservative party, she ruled out repealing the HRA, not as a...

Extradition Treaty: UK and the State of Kuwait - Motion to Take Note (30 Oct 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...some circumstances where lists are not used, but I hope that in the future the usual channels will consider it appropriate to have them. I start by saying that Labour absolutely supports the use of extradition treaties, including with such states as the US which practise the death penalty, although we strongly believe that extradition should not take place where the subject could face the...

Brexit: Dispute Resolution and Enforcement (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...illustrates Judge Forrester’s point. It was the product of an agreement reached at the Tampere European Council in 1999 that an area of freedom, security and justice should be created in the EU. Extradition between member states was to be abolished and replaced by the mechanism, established by a 2002 Council framework decision, of a system of surrender between judicial authorities. The...

Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty (23 Jul 2018)

Diane Abbott: a little bit in favour of the death penalty. Either we offer consistent opposition, or we do not. So let me remind the Minister: capital punishment is not the law of this country; we do not extradite people to countries where it is potentially a sentence for the crime; the death penalty is outlawed under the Human Rights Act 1998; and it is in breach of the European convention on human...

Written Answers — Home Office: Extradition: Burma (28 Jun 2018)

Caroline Nokes: As a matter of long-standing policy and practice, the UK will neither confirm nor deny that an extradition request has been made or received until such time as an arrest has been made in relation to that request. The UK does not have extradition relations with Burma. Whilst we are able to consider requests from countries without a treaty, to be successful, any such request would have to meet...

Scottish Parliament: European Arrest Warrants (Enforcement) (27 Mar 2018)

Michael Matheson: express the Scottish Government’s regret at the issuing of a European arrest warrant for members of the former Catalan Government and re-elected members of the Catalan Parliament. The fact that our justice system is legally obliged to follow due process in the determination of extradition requests does not change those views. However, the matter is now sub judice, and it is important...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Turkey: Human Rights (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...and its international human rights obligations. We regularly engage with Turkish ministers over human rights issues and will continue to do so. Whenever the Turkish authorities wish to make an extradition request supported by sufficient prima facie evidence of a criminal act recognised in English law and in compliance with the provisions of the Extradition Act 2003, such a request will be...

Brexit: European Arrest Warrant (European Union Committee) - Motion to Take Note (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: .... Each year around 1,000 individuals are surrendered to other EU member states under the EAW. According to the report, on average the UK issues more than 200 European arrest warrants seeking the extradition of individuals to this country. In the debate we have heard about the fundamental contradiction of the Government’s position. They have the stated priority that we remain part of the...

Backbench Business (20 Apr 2017)

Stuart McDonald: ...warrant would be sought. There is awareness and, I think, acceptance in EU institutions that more must be done to ensure proportionate use of the warrant system, although debate continues about exactly what measures are needed to make that happen. Meanwhile, changes to the Extradition Act 2003 mean that courts in the UK can apply a proportionality test and refuse to execute a warrant if...

Scottish Parliament: UK Referendum on EU Membership: Justice and Security (1 Nov 2016)

Claire Baker: ...implications that there might be, and it is incumbent on us to be clear about what those implications are. I note that the briefing from the Scottish Parliament information centre highlights the fact that a specific group has been set up within the justice department to consider the impact of Brexit on the justice system, and that Police Scotland has established a working group. However, I...

Written Answers — Home Office: Extradition (8 Jun 2016)

James Brokenshire: The statistics sought are not held centrally. The Extradition Act 2003 makes it clear that the Secretary of State must not order extradition if the subject of the extradition request could be, will be or has been sentenced to death for the offence concerned in the requesting territory. However, this does not apply if the Secretary of State receives a written assurance which she considers...

Jack Dromey: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the average time taken was to extradite suspected criminals from countries covered by the provisions of European Arrest Warrant scheme (a) before and (b) in each year after the Extradition Act 2003 came into force.

Attorney General: European Arrest Warrant (14 Apr 2016)

Jeremy Wright: I do not think that it is quite as bad as my hon. Friend suggests. In fact, what the European Court of Justice said in that case is broadly consistent with what our own Extradition Act 2003 says. He will know, of course, that in respect of the countries mentioned in that judgment, we already succeed in extraditing people to them. One of them is Romania, and my hon. Friend might like to know...

Foreign National Offenders (Exclusion from the UK) Bill (11 Mar 2016)

Philip Davies: ...establish whether someone qualifies for deportation, but I shall come to that when I go into the details of the Bill. Governments have not resisted the principle of deporting foreign criminals. In fact, it was the last Labour Government who introduced measures for their automatic deportation in certain circumstances, in the form of the UK Borders Act 2007. I do not propose to bore everyone...
