Can an extradition order be appealed?

If you are arrested and charged with a criminal offence, it is standard procedure for the police to take your fingerprints and photograph you. This information will be so used to determine your involvement in current and or future crimes.

If a person is acquitted of the charge, or the charge is withdrawn or stayed by the Crown, you have the right to apply for these records to be destroyed. Your fingerprints are part of your private identity. Unfortunately, law enforcement agencies may not be willing to have your fingerprints and photographs destroyed. Approval for the destruction of your records may be contingent on the criminal offence for which you were charged. It may also depend on the police service's policy pertaining to the destruction of personal records.
