I am interested by this concept of reciprocity regarding crimes committed in a foreign country, to potentially have an equivalent in the Canadian justice system. That of course applies to extradition cases, but also to cases of visa issuance or entry allowances for Europeans, among others.
For example, we had the case of President Puigdemont of Catalonia, who was refused entry into Canada under the pretext that he was accused of a crime that, frankly, on a global scale, is a bit outdated: the crime of sedition. The authorities are apparently checking whether there is an equivalent in Canadian law.
Be that as it may, let's come back to the specific case we are discussing. I know that the first step is the International Assistance Group, which is in charge of determining whether a tentative order for arrest should be issued. In its assessment, does that service try to figure out what the equivalent in Canadian law is or does it simply receive the country's extradition request and decide whether it is justified, in which case it would go ahead with the extradition?
