British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Italy v. Seifert, 2003 BCSC 351 (CanLII):

In United States of America v. Akrami at para. 45, I stated: Although it is evident therefore that an extradition hearing is much more limited in scope than a trial, nonetheless, I do not see any reason why Rowbotham orders should not be made where the criteria set out in Rowbotham are met in extradition proceedings.
