Extradition Treaty Law and Procedure – Part 21

Responsibilities of Judicial Officer Upon Finding Evidence Sufficient to Permit Extradition

Statutorily, three obligations exist for the judicial officer who finds evidence sufficient to permit extradition. First, the judge, justice, or magistrate must certify his or her findings to the Secretary of State. Second, the evidence and a copy of testimony taken during the hearing must be certified to the Secretary of State. And finally, there must be an issuance of a warrant for the commitment of the individual sought for extradition to the proper detention facility where he or she will remain until surrendered to the requesting country.
