Interpol red corner notice-hypothetical question, criminal proceedings

Asked about 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

This is a hypothetical question that can happen in real world. A citizen of country "X" resides in the United States. US has a treaty with country X to extradite. Since the citizen is of country X, if a red corner notice is issued, will the US govt blindly throw the visa holder out by revoking the Visa status? Or the accused shall be given the opportunity to fight it by hiring lawyers here and proving his that his is putting effort of fighting the accusations in his home country through lawyers there.

    Answered . It depends, but an Interpol notice is often honored unless the person has resources to fight extradition in Federal Court. The fact that a person has attorneys in your home country is not the issue. The defendant often need to be present at a trial, so the criminal case may not continue to trial without the defendent returned to the home country.

    The challenge is the grounds of extradition and the facts in a case. For grounds, consult with an experienced criminal attorney. Good luck.
