Assurances allow a requested State to build a cocoon of minimum special treatment standards around someone in a system which otherwise breaches human rights on a regular basis. The adequacy of the assurances is essentially what was at issue in June 2021 and April 2022, when the Supreme Court of New Zealand released two landmark extradition decisions, the Minister of Justice v Kyung Yup Kim  NZSC 57 (per Glazebrook, Ellen France and Arnold JJ) and the Minister of Justice v Kim  NZSC 44 (again per Glaze brook, Ellen France and Arnold JJ). In 2018 the New Zealand Court of Appeal had quashed a decision of then Minister of Justice Amy Adams to surrender a New Zealand resident to China. He was wanted for murder in Shanghai.
