“Extradition” is the name given to the process by which a foreign judicial authority or government asks for the assistance of the UK authorities to arrest an individual who is present in the UK and return them to the country that made the extradition request.
Requests for extradition can only be made for two reasons – to have the person requested be put on trial for a criminal offence or to have the person requested serve a prison sentence.
