International Mutual Assistance provides in-depth and comprehensive guidance on international mutual assistance in the investigation and prosecution of crime. The Crime (International Co-operation) Act 2003 has fundamentally recast the law in this area, and this new legislation is examined in detail. It deals first with general principles relating to the service of overseas process in the UK and service of UK process overseas, before going on to examine issues such as search and seizure, obtaining and supplying evidence from one country to another, transfer of prisoners, confiscation orders, and confidentiality.

Throughout, it provides clear guidance on the conventions, treaties, statutes and caselaw on the subject together with a detailed examination of the processes involved both in the UK and overseas.
