ABUSE OF EXTRADITION PROCESS

Whilst the court had jurisdiction to decline to extradite those who were properly requested where there had been abuse of the extradition process by the prosecuting authority, that jurisdiction did not extend to considering misconduct or bad faith by the police of the requesting state in the investigation of the case or the preparation of evidence for trial. It was for the trial court in the requesting state to decide whether evidence was properly obtained and whether its own procedures had been breached.
