Whilst I agree that Knox should be extradited, the US is a signatory in terms of mutual extradition agreements and can't just ignore them or others will merely do the same when America tries to extradite people, in this respect extradition is very different to international law. In terms of extradition, America tries to extradite far more people than most nations. Furthermore it is virtually unheard of for someone not to extradited on a such a straight forward murder case as compared to more complex highly political cases, and it will be seen as a snub by the Italian judiciary and indeed by many people in both Italy and indeed the UK.Originally Posted by solletica
It's one sided treaty in terms of the UK any way and I would be more than happy for the UK to scrap extradition the current treaty altogether.
