Abstract: In 1972 the Extradition Act was passed by Pakistan's Parliament to provide for the extradition into or out of the country of fugitive offenders. Under this act the fugitive offenders charged for the "extradition offenses" can be extradited between the treaty states. The list of extradition offenses is provided in the schedule of the act. It covers almost all types of crimes from culpable homicide to purgery. Pakistan agreed to become a member of the International Criminal Police Commission in 1952. The organization was subsequently renamed as International Criminal Police Organization. This paper reports on the findings of an analysis of the trend in international criminality that has involved Pakistan for the years 1989 to 1992. The analysis encompasses cases received from Asia and Africa, from Europe and the Americas, and from the Middle East, as well as cases sent abroad from Pakistan. Concluding sections discuss obstacles in international police cooperation and cooperation in the field of narcotics interdiction. Tables are presented to show the various offenses and countries involved in extradition cases for each of the years 1989, 1990, 1991, and 1992.
