This discussion on extradition was prompted by our public international law lectures in third year
(2008/2009 Academic year) with Dr. Muwolobi Dan
It concerned me that a person who had committed a crime could escape prosecution simply by
crossing borders and going into another State where he became protected by the law of
I felt that there might be a miscarriage of justice involved in such a regime and decided to
investigate the same in a dissertation. What I found was a most interesting branch of
international law that balances the rights of several parties after the commission of an offence i.e.
the rights of the international community in seeing that justice is upheld, the rights of the host
State, the rights of the requesting State and the rights of the fugitive.
This is therefore a discussion on the nature of extradition and an investigation into why it
protects the rights of the fugitive as is discussed in the third Chapter. The primary theme is to
understand why an important a branch of law as extradition does not suffice to prevent the use of
extraordinary rendition by States in dealing with transnational fugitives.
The discussion will be most interesting.
