§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many persons are currently held for possible extradition to face terrorism charges; and by when they expect decisions to be reached in these cases.[HL635]
§ Baroness Scotland of Asthal
13 persons are currently subject to extradition proceedings on charges connected to terrorist activity. The cases are at various stages of the extradition process. It is not possible to specify by when a final decision in each case will be taken; but the UK takes its international obligations in this area very seriously and aims to complete all of the cases as quickly as the process allows.
