Police and Justice Act 2006 Explanatory Notes

Paragraph 26: Authentication of receivable documents

356.Paragraph 26 corrects an oversight in the 2003 Act which removed the ability of an officer of the requesting state to certify documents so that they are receivable in an extradition hearing in the UK. The amendment to section 202(4) of the 2003 Act restores the receivability of documents in court which have been authenticated by an officer, in addition to documents authenticated by a judicial authority of the requesting state.
