Extradition from Israel

Following an introduction, the main part of the article will review the law of extradition from Israel-a subject about which little is known outside this country. The discussion will focus on the decisions and practices of both the judiciary and the executive. The remainder of the article will consider special problems that have arisen in Israel as a country with an “open gate” immigration policy for the Jews of the world and a new unwillingness to hand over its own nationals for trial and sentence abroad.
