After arrest, the defendant is brought before a District Judge for an initial hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court, in London. At the initial hearing the Court deals with issues regarding the identity of requested person, whether he was produced at court as soon as practicable, was he served with the arrest warrant and the person will be informed about the procedures for consent to extradition. The court also sets a date for the extradition hearing. Next decision is made to remand the requested person on bail or in custody.
