Extradition Treaty Law and Procedure – Part 4

Filing of Complaint for Apprehension (Request for Extradition)

Typically, there exist two means by which requesting countries apply for extradition of individuals from the United States. Usually a representative of the requesting country, through diplomatic channels, makes a request for extradition directly to the United States Department of State. However, a representative of the requesting country may make a request for extradition by filing such request in federal or state court in whose jurisdiction the individual is found. The direct filing of an application for extradition by a foreign country in state or federal court is rare but permissible under federal law.
