Category 2 territories” refers to countries designated as extradition partners under Part 2 of the Extradition Act 2003

The information on the numbers of extradition requests rejected by the UK or by category 2 territories is not routinely published.

Not all the information requested is held centrally. The tables below set out the information which is centrally held by the Home Office. The figures are from local management information, and have not been quality assured to the level of published National Statistics. As such they should be treated as provisional and therefore subject to change.

Figures for the numbers of people extradited or requests refused in a particular year may include those for whom a request was made in a previous year.
