International extradition is the formal process by which an individual
is delivered from a country where he or she is located to the requesting country
in order to face prosecution or serve a sentence. The parties involved in an
extradition are the two countries and the individual who is the subject of the
Generally, under federal law 18 U.S.C. § 3184, extradition may be granted only where there is a treaty present addressing extradition. Some countries grant extradition without a treaty. Further, the 1996 amendments to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3181 and 3184 permit the United States to extradite, without regard to the existence of a treaty, persons (other than citizens, nationals or permanent residents of the United States), who have committed crimes of violence against nationals of the United States in foreign countries.
Most countries deny extradition requests if, in the government’s opinion, the suspect is sought for a political crime. Many countries, such as Mexico, Canada and most European nations, will not allow extradition if the death penalty may be imposed on the suspect, unless they are assured that the death sentence will not subsequently be passed or carried out.
If you or someone you know is facing extradition, you will need the advice and counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney at Joffe Law.
