Paragraphs 10 to 14: Extradition of person serving sentence in United Kingdom

341.Paragraphs 10 to 14 make provision for a person who is on licence in the UK following conviction for an offence to be extradited while on licence. While the Act makes provision for a serving prisoner to be temporarily surrendered to the requesting jurisdiction, it does not make equivalent provision for someone who has completed the custodial part of the sentence and is out on licence. The amendments also cover arrangements for both the surrender of the person to the requesting jurisdiction and for his return to the UK to complete his licence period after his trial in the other state.

342.The amendments do not apply where someone has been given a suspended sentence or conditional discharge.
