Extradition Is Subject To Treaty Agreement

Generally speaking, an extradition treaty requires that a country requesting extradition be able to provide evidence: countries with the rule of law generally review extradition by the courts of that country. These courts may impose or prevent the extradition of certain restrictions, for example when they consider that the charges are based on dubious evidence or evidence obtained through torture, or if they believe that the accused is not entitled to a fair trial on arrival or that he or she is being treated cruelly, in an inhuman or degrading manner in the event of extradition. (b) indicate the offences for which extradition is requested. The time and place of their mandate, their legal descriptions and a reference to the relevant legislation must be specified as precisely as possible; and Carlos Ghosn. The former auto industry executive shocked the international business community in late 2019 by prompting ex-servicemen to take him out of Tokyo, where he was placed under judicial surveillance, to transport him to Beirut, Lebanon. His escape, which included a stop in Istanbul, was seen as an embarrassment to Japanese authorities who were pursuing Ghosn for alleged financial crimes. The incident also weighed on relations between Japan and Lebanon, which do not have an extradition agreement. In response, Tokyo issued an Interpol Red Notice for Ghosn. The jurisdiction of an offence may be invoked to refuse extradition.
