Simplifying Extradition Procedures: A Proposal to Extend the Scope of the London Scheme for the Rendition of Fugitive Offenders

Law Officers of Small Commonwealth Jurisdictions met in Namibia in 1995. Having considered the question whether the London Scheme in its current form gave sufficient flexibility to their jurisdictions to enter into simple extradition arrangements with other countries and, in particular, with near neighbours, they requested that the issue of adding provisions to the London Scheme on the Rendition of Fugitive Offenders to facilitate simplified regional arrangements be considered by Law Ministers at their next meeting. Law Ministers may be interested to know that the Pacific Island Law Officers Meeting (PILOM) has already embarked on an exercise to revise national extradition laws in the region and to include in those national laws provisions which will permit simplified extradition arrangements to be adopted on bilaterally agreed bases between member countries.
