Chapter Summary

The chapter discusses the authority of the Attorney General. The Attorney General is authorized to act on behalf of the United States as the authority referred to in a treaty and to render to foreign countries and to receive from them the certifications and reports required to be made under such treaties. All laws of the United States, as appropriate, pertaining to prisoners, probationers, parolees, and juvenile offenders shall be applicable to offenders transferred to the United States.
