Chapter Summary

Extradition to United States is affected by the domestic laws, procedures, institutions, and policies of the countries from which the United States requests extradition. It is a process over which the United States has only limited control. It influences this process through direct liaison between the U.S. Department of Justice and the foreign officials responsible for handling United States extradition requests. Such liaison being primarily directed at ensuring that the United States provides all the information and evidence these officials deem necessary. This chapter analyzes the statutory. It is assumed that a country from which the United States seeks extradition regulates extradition by statute. Like the United States statutes relating to extradition from the United States, foreign extradition statutes establish the procedures by which extradition from such countries takes place. The normal rule in foreign common law jurisdictions is that a statutory provision takes precedence over an inconsistent treaty provision.
