Extradition: USA

Question for Home Office

UIN 6351, tabled on 28 October 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to Answer on 22 October 2019 to Question 151 on Extradition: USA, how many (a) US citizens have been extradited to the UK and (b) UK citizens have been extradited to the US since the implementation of the Extradition Act 2003.

Since 2007, the UK has surrendered 49 UK nationals to the US. During the same time period the US has surrendered 11 US nationals to the UK.

All figures are taken from local management information, and have not been quality assured to the level of published National Statistics. As such they should be treated as provisional and therefore subject to change. The figures do not include Scotland, which deals with its own extradition cases.
