Extradition

criminal country offense

Extradition, surrendering of a person wanted for trial of a criminal offense by 1 state or country to another. International extradition only operates where a treaty has been signed by both countries involved. A country may refuse the extradition if the offender is to be tried for a political offense. Although the U.S. Constitution provides for the extradition of a criminal from 1 state to another, the governors are not bound to comply with an extradition order.
