All appropriate criminal justice and administrative routes to support the Ukrainians are being explored. The Director of the Serious Fraud Office has opened a criminal investigation into possible money laundering arising from suspicions of corruption in Ukraine. The Serious Fraud Office has obtained a restraint order freezing approximately $23 million of assets in the UK in connection with this case.</p><p> </p>

It is required to provide prima facie evidence in support of any extradition request.The Category 2 designation does not in itself amount to a simplified extradition procedure. When deciding an extradition case the court must consider any relevant Human Rights concerns. If the court believes a person’s rights under the European Convention on Human Rights would be breached, they must discharge the request.</p><p /> more like this
