Paragraph 24: Extradition requests to territories not applying European framework decision to old cases

354.Paragraph 24 makes provision (by inserting a new section 155A into the 2003 Act) for the issue of extradition requests (as opposed to Part 3 warrants) to certain category 1 territories for certain old offences. A small number of territories have availed themselves of the provisions of Article 32 of the Framework Decision on the European Arrest Warrant, which states that where a person is wanted for offences committed before 7 August 2002 an extradition request rather than a European Arrest Warrant may be issued for their extradition.
