During the course of the review we were fortunate to discuss the issues raised in this Report with members of the Bench, in both New Zealand and Canada. We also spoke to officials in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom who have specialised expertise in extradition and mutual assistance law. We are particularly grateful for all of their time and input.

In addition we are very grateful for the valuable contribution of the Parliamentary Counsel Office. We would like to acknowledge the work of Bill Moore, Cathy Rodgers and Alana Belin on the two draft Bills, which form an integral part of this Report.

We also acknowledge the contribution of past and present legal and policy advisers who have undertaken work on this project: Marion Clifford, Susan Hall and Bridget Fenton and of our law clerks Asher Emanuel, Jacob Meagher and Henry Hillind.
