What is the legal test for adduce evidence in an extradition hearing?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from United States of America v. Trotter, 2013 BCSC 1764 (CanLII):

In United States of America v. Edwards, 2011 BCCA 100 at paras. 31-34, the court established the procedure a person sought must follow when seeking to adduce evidence: counsel for the person sought must summarize the evidence and explain its legal significance to the committal application. Only where the proffered evidence is sufficiently reliable and relevant to an issue to be determined by the extradition judge will the evidence be admitted at the extradition hearing stage. The person sought is not entitled to call evidence that is inadmissible or irrelevant.
