Requête (Deputy J. Merrett & Six Others) - P.2020/18
The States are asked to decide:-
Whether, after consideration of the Requête dated 5th February, 2020, they are of the opinion:-
1. To agree that before any request is made for the UK-US Extradition Treaty of 2003 to be extended to the Bailiwick, the States of Deliberation must approve a proposition that such a request be made, and the States of Alderney and Chief Pleas of Sark must also be consulted; and
2. To direct the Policy & Resources Committee, in consultation with other Committees of the States, to develop proposals for a modernised approach to the adoption of international treaties and conventions in Guernsey, which includes a greater degree of democratic scrutiny and engagement by the States Assembly as set out in this Requête, to replace the 1987 Resolution, and to return to the States with proposals no later than the end of 2021.
The above Propositions have been submitted to Her Majesty's Procureur for advice on any legal or constitutional implications in accordance with Rule 4(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the States of Deliberation and their Committees.
