Yes. But by policy the UK must obtain an undertaking that, if convicted, the extraditee will not face it.

This used to be a bright-line rule: if the UK government provides any assistance in a prosecution, the death penalty must not be sought by the assisted country. Sadly, the current scumbag Conservatives have weakened this rule considerably by agreeing to waive this requirement for case where they provide information used in a prosecution (both Boris and Sajid independently engaged in this disgusting behavior).
