Czech Republic and USA to sign new agreement on extradition

14-12-2004

The Czech Republic and the United States have agreed on the need to sign a new agreement on the mutual extradition of citizens. The Czech Interior Minister Frantisek Bublan and the visiting US Attorney General John Aschcroft said in Prague on Tuesday that the existing agreement from 1925 is badly outdated and does not apply to certain crimes. The new agreement should be in line with the framework agreement between the European Union and the United States. During their meeting in Prague the two officials discussed the fight against terrorism, people trafficking and the fight against drugs.
