Does Northern Ireland have an Extradition Treaty with the UK?

As the title states. I was intrigued by the story of a young man who returned to Northern Ireland to visit his mother. On attempting to return to Scotland he was arrested for rioting that took place last year. The judge remanded him because he was considered a flight risk.

So does the North have an Extradition Treaty with the UK?

Northern Ireland is part of the UK, so why would an extradition treaty need to be in place?

Did you read the article or the OP? If your argument stands then why was he simply not arrested and returned to Ireland for trial?

Could he not have promised to get the ferry instead?:p

People born and raised in Dublin and permanently residing in Dublin can also be considered a flight risk.
It can be based on the fact that an individual has nothing tying them to a particular location ie family, employment etc.

He was a flight risk from the North, so he was remanded in custody.. it was done simply to save resources of the PSNI and Scottish police having to go looking for the little scum bag.. nothing at all to do with "extradition"

Remanded for being a flight risk, ie is likely to do a runner, not pose a threat to the Ryanair staff.

Edit: misread the article.

An extradition treaty would not be needed between member states of the UK.

Fair enough. I don't understand then why he simply was not arrested and returned while in Scotland.

Probably wasn't very high up on the list of priorities for the Scottish cops. They have their own sectarian rioters to be dealing with.

Maybe they didn't know where he was...
