Laws of Extradition
With every day that passes, in this day and age, the extent of cooperation consistently continues to grow between the world’s 193 nations: from cooperation of the economical-commercial variety, to security related cooperation and to technological cooperation. In addition to these, one can find the ever expanding cooperation in the homeland security and law domains. A cooperation, intended to ensure that a person who has committed a crime outside of his/her country – will not be able to evade punishment. This universal principle is one that forms the foundation of extradition laws established in many international treaties, signed among others by , of course, Israel.
It is important to remember in relation to the laws of extradition that the job of an attorney does not simply end with formal representation and before the extradition is finalized– quite the contrary. A defense attorney, well versed in the legal material is a necessity in every legal field, but the importance of professional legal representation becomes more palpable in extradition proceedings due to the severity of the matter at hand.
