Resource Implications of Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters

Law Officers of Small Commonwealth Jurisdictions (LOSCI) at their 1995 meeting considered the resource implications of mutual assistance in criminal matters. Their concluding statement records that the meeting “asked that the issue be placed before Law Ministers with a view to developing guidelines on the apportionment of costs in mutual assistance cases. They asked that Law Ministers be appraised of the effects on small jurisdictions of their participation in mutual assistance arrangements and be asked to ensure that the burdens incurred were shared in appropriate proportions between requesting and requested countries taking into account experience which shows that the burdens are not falling equally among members of the Commonwealth.”
