If you or a family member has been arrested and are facing an Extradition request, you will be taken to Westminster Magistrates Court. It is therefore important to seek the right representation at an early stage. This is where our specialist extradition lawyers can assist you.
The Court will determine the preliminary matters at an Initial Hearing. If you contest your extradition, the Court will list your case for a full extradition hearing. The Court will often require the payment of a bail deposit by way of cash security, and the surrender of identity documents. This is inclusive of compliance with other bail conditions. It is key to identify the issues in the case early on, which could be on Human Rights, technical or procedural grounds.
Our team can assist you from this early stage, and throughout proceedings. We have successfully contested extradition requests cases. This is both in Part 1 (European Arrest Warrant) and Part 2 cases, on Human Rights and on procedural grounds.
