“(2) For the avoidance of doubt, the Court, if satisfied that no injustice would be caused to the person by making an order under subsection (1), may make that order even if—

(a) there is a defect in, or an omission of, a non-substantial detail in the request for extradition or any document supporting the request,

(b) there is a variance between any such document and the evidence adduced before the Court, so long as the Court is satisfied that the variance is explained by the evidence, or
