It is easier to extradite a person from Britain to the US than the other way round. The US requires evidence from the Brits that a crime has been committed. When an US intelligence office’s wife killed a teenager on his bike while exiting an army base in the UK on the wrong side of the road, she claimed diplomatic immunity and fled to the US. American authorities refuse to extradite her to face a charge of ‘dangerous driving causing death’.
When the US seeks extradition of Julian Assange from the UK no eivdence of an offence is required. Nor is close adherence to the extradition treaty between the two countries, at least according to the judge. Witnesses claim that this is a show trial. Here are reports filed by John Jiggens from Byron bay FM of the trial that occurred the week beginning 24 Feb 2020. The matter has been adjourned till May.
