Section 132: Return of person to serve remainder of sentence
372.This section applies where a person who was serving a custodial sentence in the United Kingdom is extradited and then returned to this country to serve the rest of his United Kingdom sentence (subsection (1)). In this situation the person is liable to be detained to serve the sentence and, if he is at large, he is to be treated as being unlawfully at large (subsections (2) and (3)).
373.Time spent out of the United Kingdom in connection with the person's extradition does not count as time served towards his sentence in the United Kingdom (subsection (4)), unless he is acquitted of the extradition offences or any other offences in respect of which he was allowed to be dealt with in the requesting territory (subsection (5)). In this situation, as set out in subsection (6), time spent in custody outside the United Kingdom, in connection with these offences, does count as time served for the purpose of the United Kingdom sentence.
