This article examines some key components of international co-operation in criminal matters - extradition and mutual legal assistance - looking in particular at the Commonwealth perspective and experience in this growing field. It considers the Commonwealth Schemes for Co-operation - <I>The London Scheme for Extradition within the Commonwealth and the Harare Scheme on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters</I> - in light of modern developments and issues in the practice of international co-operation. Particular issues considered include in extradition the test for an extraditable offence and the use of the `listing approach' and `penalty based approach'. The article also considers the controversy surrounding the requirement for evidence in extradition cases and the different types of approaches to evidentiary requirements now being introduced within the Commonwealth and generally.
