Sacirbey v. Guccione, No. 06-5137

By FindLaw Staff on December 09, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a habeas petition challenging an order extraditing plaintiff to Bosnia, denial of the petition is reversed where the relevant arrest warrant was issued by a court that neither had jurisdiction over the matter nor authority to enforce the warrant, and thus the requirement of the Treaty for Mutual Extradition of Fugitives from Justice between the U.S. and Bosnia that an individual be "charged" with an extraditable offense had not been satisfied.
