Extradition To and From the United States: Overview of the Law and Recent (ISBN: 1437934811)
By Michael John Garcia and Charles Doyle
(Paperback, 44 pages, 2010, $20)

In May 2010, after years of opposition and recent pressure from the Obama administration, Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding last week reversed his stance and okayed the extradition of alleged drug king pin Christopher (Dudus) Coke to stand trial in New York, reports the New York Daily News. Today, Coke was captured, reports the Christian Science Monitor.

“Extradition” is the formal surrender of a person by a State to another State for prosecution or punishment. The U.S. has extradition treaties with over a hundred nations, although there are many countries with which it has no extradition treaty. International terrorism and drug trafficking have made extradition an increasingly important law enforcement tool.

Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) Bars to Extradition; (3) Constitutionality; (4) Procedure for Extradition from the U.S.: Arrest and Bail; Hearing; Review; Surrender; (5) Extradition for Trial or Punishment in the U.S.; (6) Alternatives to Extradition; Waiver. Append.: Countries with Which the U.S. Has a Bilateral Extradition Treaty, and those with Which the U.S. Has No Bilateral Extradition Treaty.
