I thank the Acting Chair. All of these are technical amendments. Amendment No. 1 is a grammatical correction and I thank Senator Ward for bringing this to our attention. With regard to amendments Nos. 2, 3, 8 and 9, section 21A of the Act is being repealed and references to it, including references to the provision by which it was originally asserted, are being removed accordingly.Amendments Nos. 4 and 10 clarify the application of section 15(5)(a) and section 16(5)(a) which deal with situation where surrender does not take place due to force majeure specifically to clarify an order further detaining the person is made only once and a new surrender date is fixed.

Amendments Nos. 7 and 14 correct cross-references. Amendments Nos. 11 and 17 correct typographical errors. Amendment No. 16 is a minor technical amendment to the transit provisions to clarify that they apply to a person when the extradition is ongoing.
