EXTRADITION

Extradition is an official process allowing for the surrender of a suspected or convicted criminal from one state to another. A country requesting extradition may rely on either an international treaty or on the domestic law of the foreign country. New Zealand’s extradition procedures are laid out in the Extradition Act 1999 (the Act) which governs the extradition of persons to and from New Zealand. The Act does not require a foreign country to have a treaty to request extradition from New Zealand.
