why doesn't australia protect its citizens?

Apparently, "The Commonwealth will not extradite or deport a prisoner to another jurisdiction if they might face the death penalty"

The UK is in the Commonwealth and has the same stricture. None of the extradition charges carry the death penalty.

So how is this relevant?

> None of the extradition charges carry the death penalty.

I 'm not sure about that, the UN seems to be concerned:
