Individual rights in the European extradition procedure

Analyse: Extradition is the most adequate and effective manner to hand-over individuals fugitive from international criminal justice where the right of punishment and the procedural rights of the accused or convicted individuals are fairly distributed, especially in the european extradition system, save the aspect of politically involved transactions between the concerned States.
The former right is executable if the double criminality requirment reaches certain amount of gravity of puishment, including those super crimes having turned into depolitisized crimes concepts.
The latter rights are part and parcel of any individual subject to an extradition procedure who may plead political, military or fiscal offences and nationality characterisations or human rights protections as well as juridictional requirments for criminal prosecutions.
Extradition, being an international institution, has neither let nor ignored its subjects without controling their activities and their legal interests in favor of, and for, the international justice.
