Policing and Crime Act 2009

Section 76 Dealing with person for other offences

371.Section 76 replaces section 151 of the Extradition Act 2003 with a new section 151A. This section deals with situations where the UK would want to deal with an offence committed by a person previously extradited to the UK for the purposes of prosecution for a different offence. Subsection (1) of the new section 151A makes it clear that this protection applies to any territory which is not a category 1 territory or a country listed under section 150(1)(b) of the Extradition Act 2003. Subsections (2), (3) and (4) make it clear that the person may only be dealt with in the UK for an offence committed before their extradition if it is an offence falling within subsection (3) and meets either of the conditions set out in subsection (4). Subsection (5) defines what is meant by a person being dealt with for an offence in the UK.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
