EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)


Part 2 of the Extradition Act 2003 ("the Act") applies to all territories with which the United Kingdom has extradition relations that are not designated as category 1 territories. Article 2 designates those territories which will be category 2 territories and for which the provisions of Part 2 of the Act will apply.

Article 3 designates some of those category 2 territories under sections 71(4), 73(5), 84(7) and 86(7) of the Act. These are the territories that are not required to provide prima facie evidence to support a request for extradition.

Finally, article 4 designates those territories that have a period longer than the normal 45 days for submitting documents to the United Kingdom. This is pursuant to the power found in section 74(11)(b) of the Act. Article 4 stipulates in each case the required period in relation to each individual territory.
