This led me to wonder about extraditions when law differs between countries.
Imagine a country A where activity X is illegal. A person P has done this action against the interests of country A. This person is a national of C.
Country A wants to prosecute P and requests extradition. What happens when P is in a third country B?
- will C, on request, have a "right of priority" to request extradition and judge P at home?
- what happens if the law in B does not perceive X as illegal?
I am interested in the purely legal aspect, not "behind the scene" activities where A can bully B or C, or B does not have extradition arrangements with A.
