Annotation: THIS PAPER EXPLAINS THE POSITION (AS OF 1960) OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL POLICE ORGANIZATION (INTERPOL) CONCERNING EXTRADITION.
Abstract: EXTRADITION CAN BE CONSIDERED FROM VARIOUS POINTS OF VIEW BASED ON THE PERSON CLAIMED, THE METHOD USED FOR EXTRADITION, AND THE REQUESTED AUTHORITIES. TYPES OF EXTRADITION ACCORDING TO THE PERSON CLAIMED ARE EXTRADITION OF A NATIONAL, NORMAL EXTRADITION, EXTRADITION OF A THIRD PARTY, AND VOLUNTARY EXTRADITION. TYPES OF EXTRADITION ACCORDING TO THE METHOD USED ARE DIRECT EXTRADITION, EXTRADITION WITH TRANSIT, AND REEXTRADITION. FINALLY, TYPES OF EXTRADITION ACCORDING TO THE REQUESTED AUTHORITIES ARE ADMINISTRATIVE, JUDICIAL, AND MIXED EXTRADITION. GENERALLY, EXTRADITION IS ONLY GRANTED FOR RELATIVELY SERIOUS OFFENSES AGAINST CRIMINAL LAW WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO PUNISHMENT IN BOTH THE REQUESTING AND REQUESTED STATES. IN THE FINAL INSTANCE, EACH STATE IS SOLE JUDGE OF WHETHER OR NOT TO EXTRADITE A PERSON. FOR EXTRADITION TO BE OF REAL VALUE, THE PROCEDURE MUST BE RAPID AND EFFECTIVE. BASED ON INTERPOL'S PRESENT CONSTITUTION, IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN FOR THE ORGANIZATION TO UNDERTAKE ANY INTERVENTIONS OR ACTIVITIES OF A POLITICAL, MILITARY, RELIGIOUS, OR RACIAL CHARACTER. THE REPORT ALSO DISCUSSES INTERPOL'S INTERVENTION POLICY IN PREEXTRADITION PROCEDURES, INCLUDING THE NORMAL PROCEDURE AND THE EMERGENCY PROCEDURE, AND THE ORGANIZATION'S INSTITUTING A SIMPLE SET OF REGULATIONS FOR PREEXTRADITION PROCEDURE TO SOLVE SOME DIFFICULT PROBLEMS OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION. RELATED RESOLUTIONS OF INTERPOL ARE APPENDED. (PRG)
