Britain refuses to extradite Musharraf
Islamabad: The British government has made it clear to the Pakistani authorities that it would not hand over former President Pervez Musharraf to them.
As per British government, it does not extradite individuals to countries where the death penalty is enforced; rather, it processes such requests as per its judicial system before giving out any decision.
The refusal comes after a formal letter was sent through the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to the Interpol with respect to a Red Notice stating that Musharraf was required within Pakistan in connection with the Benazir Bhutto murder probe.
According to The News International, Britain has hugely dampened such extradition calls in the past. An Interpol Red Notice is considered an international arrest warrant, as by itself Interpol does not have the authority to issue arrest warrants, as this authority usually lies in the hands of sovereign member states.
Britain has stated that a number of individuals, including Musharraf, belonging to different countries, have been living within the United Kingdom (all wanted by their respective governments), and would be handed over to their respective countries until they defy the law of the UK.
