Extradition Treaty Law and Procedure – Part 22

Release on Bail After Commitment for Extradition

No extradition treaty exists which expressly authorizes release on bail after an individual sought for extradition has been certified as extraditable and committed to jail for that purpose. In addition, no statutory provision exists authorizing bail after commitment. However, courts maintain the inherent authority to grant bail even after an individual is committed for extradition. In many instances bail may be granted or continued if originally granted prior to the extradition hearing.
