Extradition Act, 1965

Remand of arrested person to District Court.

46.—(1) A peace commissioner before whom an arrested person is brought under section 45 shall remand him, either in custody or on bail, to the earliest practicable sitting of the District Court in a district in which he acts, being a sitting to be held within eight days after the arrest.

(2) Where a person remanded on bail under subsection (1) fails to appear as required by his recognisance, the justice sitting at the court before which he was bound to appear may issue a warrant for his arrest; and on his arrest he shall be dealt with as if he had been arrested at that time under the warrant under which he was previously arrested.
