3.
Application of Part

(2) An order made under this section shall recite or embody the terms of the agreement and shall not remain in force for any longer period than the agreement.
(3) Every order made under this section shall be laid before the House of Representatives.
[Act No. 65 of 1968, s. 19.]

4.
Liability of fugitive criminals to surrender
Subject to the provisions of section 16, where this Part of this Act applies in the case of any country, every fugitive criminal of that country who is in or suspected of being in Kenya shall be liable to be arrested, detained and surrendered in the manner provided by this Part of this Act—
(a) whether the crime in respect of which the surrender is sought was committed before or after the commencement of this Act or the application of this Part of this Act to that country; and
(b) whether there is or is not any concurrent jurisdiction in a court in Kenya over that crime.

5.
Requisition for surrender
(1) A requisition for the surrender of a fugitive criminal of any country who is in or suspected of being in Kenya shall be made to the Minister by a diplomatic representative or consular officer of that country and, upon receipt of such requisition, the Minister may, by order under his hand, signify to a magistrate that a requisition has been made and require the magistrate to issue his warrant for the arrest and detention of the fugitive criminal.
(2) If the Minister is of the opinion that the offence is one of a political character he may refuse to make an order and may also at any time order a fugitive criminal accused or convicted of such offence to be discharged from custody.

6.
Issue of warrant
(1) The warrant for the arrest of a fugitive criminal, whether accused or convicted of a crime, who is in or suspected of being in Kenya, may be issued by a magistrate—
(a) on the receipt of the order of the Minister and on such evidence as would, in the opinion of the magistrate, justify the issue of the warrant if the crime had been committed or the criminal convicted in Kenya; or
(b) on such information or complaint and such evidence or after such proceedings as would, in the opinion of the magistrate, justify the issue of a warrant if the crime had been committed or the criminal convicted in Kenya.

(2) A magistrate issuing a warrant under this section without an order from the Minister shall forthwith send a report of the fact of the issue, together with the evidence and information or complaint or certified copies thereof, to the Minister, who may order the warrant to be cancelled and the person who has been arrested and detained on the warrant to be discharged.
(3) A fugitive criminal when arrested on a warrant under this section shall be brought before a magistrate as soon as possible.
(4) A fugitive criminal arrested and detained on a warrant issued without the order of the Minister shall be discharged by the magistrate unless the magistrate, within such reasonable time as, with reference to the circumstances of the case, he may fix, receives from the Minister an order signifying that a requisition has been made for the surrender of the criminal.
(5) The warrant of a magistrate issued in pursuance of this Part of this Act may be executed in any part of Kenya in the same manner as if it had been originally issued or subsequently endorsed by a magistrate having jurisdiction in the place where it is executed.

7.
Hearing of case and evidence
(1) When a fugitive criminal is brought before a magistrate, the magistrate shall hear the case in the same manner and have the same jurisdiction and powers, as nearly as may be, as in a trial before a subordinate court.
(2) The magistrate shall receive any evidence which may be tendered to show that the case is one to which the relevant provisions of section 16 apply or that the crime of which the prisoner is accused is not an extradition crime.
[Act No. 13 of 1982, Second Sch.]

8.
Committal or discharge of prisoner
(1) In the case of a fugitive criminal accused of an extradition crime, if the foreign warrant authorizing the arrest of the criminal is duly authenticated, and such evidence is produced as, subject to the provisions of this Act, would according to the law of Kenya, justify the committal for trial of the prisoner if the crime of which he is accused was committed in Kenya, the magistrate shall commit him to prison, but otherwise shall order him to be discharged.
(2) In the case of a fugitive criminal alleged to have been convicted of an extradition crime, if such evidence is produced as, subject to the provisions of this Act would, according to the law of Kenya, prove that the prisoner was convicted of such crime, the magistrate shall commit him to prison, but otherwise shall order him to be discharged.
(3) If the magistrate commits such criminal to prison, he shall commit him to prison to await the warrant of the Minister for his surrender; and the magistrate shall forthwith send to the Minister a certificate of the committal and such report on the case as he may think fit.

9.
Surrender of fugitive criminal
(1) Whenever a magistrate commits a fugitive criminal to prison under this Part of this Act he shall inform the criminal that he will not be surrendered until after the expiration of fifteen days and that he has a right to apply for the issue of directions in the nature of habeas corpus.
(2) Upon the expiration of the period of fifteen days, or, if directions in the nature of habeas corpus are issued, after the decision of the court upon the return to the directions, as the case may be, or after such further period as may be allowed in either case by the Minister, the Minister may by warrant under his hand order the fugitive criminal, if not set at liberty on the decision of the court, to be surrendered to such person as is in his opinion, duly authorized to receive the fugitive criminal by the country from which the requisition for the surrender proceeded, and the fugitive criminal shall be surrendered accordingly.
(3) Any person to whom such warrant is directed, and the person so authorized as aforesaid, may receive, hold in custody and convey into the jurisdiction of that country the criminal mentioned in the warrant.

10.
Discharge of fugitive criminal
Whenever a fugitive criminal who has been committed to prison is not surrendered and conveyed out of Kenya within two months after the committal, or if directions in the nature of habeas corpus are issued, after the decision of the court upon the return to the directions, any judge of the High Court may—
(a) upon application made to him by or on behalf of the criminal; and
(b) upon proof that reasonable notice of the intention to make the application has been given to the Minister,
order the criminal to be discharged out of custody unless sufficient cause is shown to the contrary.

PART III – RECIPROCAL BACKING OF WARRANTS
11.
Application of Part
(1) Where the Minister is satisfied that reciprocal provision has been or will be made by or under the law of any contiguous country other than a designated Commonwealth country within the meaning of the Extradition (Commonwealth Countries) Act (Cap. 77), for the backing of warrants issued in Kenya and their execution in that country and that it is appropriate to do so, he may, by order published in the Gazette, declare that this Part of this Act shall apply in the case of that country subject to such conditions, exceptions and qualifications as may be specified in the order, and this Part shall apply accordingly.
(2) Every order made under this section shall be laid before the House of Representatives.
[Act No. 65 of 1968, s. 19.]

12.
Backing of warrants issued in another country
(1) Where a warrant has been issued in a country to which this Part of this Act applies for the arrest of a person accused of an offence punishable by law in that country and he is or is suspected of being in or on the way to Kenya, a magistrate may, if satisfied that the warrant was issued by a person having lawful authority to issue it, endorse such warrant.
(2) An endorsement of a warrant shall be signed by the magistrate and shall authorize all or any of the persons named in the endorsement and every police officer to execute the warrant by arresting the person named in it and bringing him before a magistrate.
(3) A warrant endorsed under this section shall be sufficient authority to arrest, within the jurisdiction of the endorsing magistrate, the person named in the warrant and to bring him before a magistrate.
(4) This Part of this Act shall apply whatever the date of the warrant and whether the offence is alleged to have been committed before or after the commencement of this Act or the application of this Part of this Act to the country concerned.

13.
Provisional warrant
(1) Notwithstanding that a warrant for the arrest of any person issued in a country to which this Part of this Act applies may not yet have been endorsed in pursuance of this Part, a magistrate may issue a provisional warrant for the arrest of such person on such information and under such circumstances as would, in his opinion, justify the issue of a warrant if the offence of which that person is accused were an offence punishable by the law of Kenya and had been committed within his jurisdiction; and such warrant may be endorsed in the manner provided in the Criminal Procedure Code (Cap. 75), and may be executed accordingly.
(2) Where a person is arrested under such a provisional warrant—
(a) no order may be made under section 14 for his return to the country in which the original warrant was issued unless the original warrant is produced and endorsed in accordance with this Part; and

(b) he shall be discharged unless the original warrant is produced and endorsed within such time as the magistrate thinks reasonable in the circumstances.

14.
Return of prisoner
(1) Subject to the provisions of section 16, where a person arrested under a warrant endorsed in accordance with section 12, or a provisional warrant issued under section 13 is brought before a magistrate and, in the case of a person arrested under a provisional warrant, the original warrant has been produced and endorsed, the magistrate may, if he is satisfied—
(a) that the warrant is duly authenticated as directed by this Act and was issued by a person having lawful authority to issue the same; and
(b) by evidence on oath, that the prisoner is the person named or otherwise described in the warrant,
order the prisoner to be returned to the country in which the original warrant was issued, and for that purpose to be delivered into the custody of the persons to whom the warrant is directed or any one or more of them and to be held in custody and conveyed into that country.

(2) A person to whom the warrant is directed and the person so authorized may receive, hold in custody and convey into the jurisdiction of that country the prisoner mentioned in the warrant.
(3) A magistrate shall, so far as is requisite for the exercise of the powers of this section, have the same power, including the power to remand and admit to bail a prisoner, as he has in the case of a person arrested under a warrant issued by him.
(4) In proceedings under this section, the magistrate shall receive any evidence which may be tendered to show that the case is one to which the relevant provisions of section 16 apply.

15.
Discharge of prisoner
(1) Whenever a prisoner whose return is authorized in pursuance of this Part of this Act is not conveyed out of Kenya within one month after the date of the order for his return, a magistrate may—
(a) upon application by or on behalf of the prisoner; and
(b) upon proof that reasonable notice of the intention to make the application has been given to the person holding the warrant and to the Commissioner of Police or chief officer of the police of the district, city, town or area where the prisoner is in custody; and
(c) unless sufficient cause is shown to the contrary,
order the prisoner to be discharged out of custody.

(2) Without prejudice to any application for directions in the nature of a writ of habeas corpus in respect of anything purporting to be done under this Part of this Act, any order or refusal to make an order of discharge under subsection (1) of this section may be the subject of an appeal to the High Court.
(3) If, in any proceedings under this Part of this Act which are brought to his attention, the Minister is of opinion that the offence is one of a political character, he may order a person arrested under this Part to be discharged from custody.

PART IV – MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS RELATING TO SURRENDER AND RETURN
Restrictions
16.
Restriction on surrender or return
(1) A fugitive criminal shall not be surrendered under Part II of this Act and a person arrested under Part II of this Act shall not be returned—
(a) if the offence in respect of which his surrender is required, or the offence specified in the warrant, as the case may be, is one of a political character or if it appears to a court or the Minister that the requisition for the surrender, or the application for endorsement of a warrant and the return of the person named therein, has in fact been made with a view to try or to punish him for an offence of a political character: or
(b) if the fugitive criminal or the person arrested is accused of some offence triable by a court in Kenya or is undergoing sentence under any conviction in Kenya, until after he has been discharged, whether by acquittal or on the expiration of his sentence or otherwise.

(2) Subject to the provisions of section 27, a fugitive criminal shall not be surrendered under Part II—
(a) unless provision is made by the law of the country to which he is to be surrendered, or by agreement, that the fugitive criminal shall not, unless he has been restored or had an opportunity of returning to Kenya, be detained or tried in that country for any offence committed before his surrender other than an extradition crime proved by the facts on which the surrender is grounded; or
(b) until the expiration of fifteen days from the date of his being committed to prison to await his surrender.

(3) Where the return of a prisoner is sought or arranged under Part III, and it appears to the magistrate that by reason of the trivial nature of the case, or by reason of the application for the return of the prisoner not being made in good faith in the interests of justice, or otherwise, it would, having regard to the distance, to the facilities of communication and to all the circumstances of the case, be unjust or oppressive or too severe a punishment to return the prisoner either at all or until the expiration of a certain period, the magistrate may discharge the prisoner either absolutely or on bail or order that he shall not be returned until after the expiration of the period named in the order or may make such other order in the matter as the magistrate thinks proper.
(4) Without prejudice to any application for directions in the nature of a writ of habeas corpus in respect of anything purporting to be done under Part III of this Act, an order or refusal to make an order of discharge under subsection (3) may be the subject of an appeal to the High Court.

20.
Search warrants
