Is there an extra time given for criminal prosecution in Canada if there's foreign evidence that have to be collected?
There might be delays experienced if the court has to secure bank records and other evidences located outside of Canada, I am wondering if the laws of Canada take that into consideration when applying the statute of limitation for criminal laws.
The Court held that proceeding on a foreign judgment is subject to the basic two-year limitation period in the Limitations Act, 2002, S.O. 2002, c. 24 (Act). Section 16(1) of the Act, which provides that there is no limitation period in respect of "a proceeding to enforce an order of a court, or any other order that may be enforced in the same way as an order of a court" does not apply to a foreign judgment.
There's something I found about foreign judgment, but it doesn't seem to be related to foreign evidence at all.
