Chapter Summary

The international transfer of proceedings in criminal matters refers to the agreed transfer of responsibility for prosecution from a country in which charges have been brought to another country. International transfers of criminal proceedings are being increasingly utilized by European civil law countries even when such transfers are not governed by treaty or legislation in either the country in which charges have been brought, or the country that is requested to take over responsibility for prosecution. The United States is not a party to any treaty on the transfer of proceedings in criminal matters. International extradition and prisoner transfer, when used in tandem with respect to nationals of the country from which extradition is requested, produce the same end result as transfer of proceedings if the alleged offender is ultimately convicted in the country requesting extradition -i.e., the service of sentence in the offender's country of nationality.
