Treaty Doc. 113-6: Extradition Treaty with the Republic of Chile, Message from the President of the United States, Transmitting Extradition Treaty Between the Government of the United States of America and the Republic of Chile, United States Senate, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, Second Session, September 17, 2014   [open pdf - 1MB]

This is the September 17, 2014 message from the President of the United States on "Extradition Treaty with the Republic of Chile" as referred to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. President Barack Obama's Letter of Transmittal: "The Treaty would replace the outdated extradition treaty between the United States and Chile, signed at Santiago on April 17, 1900 (the '1900 Treaty'). The Treaty follows generally the form and content of other extradition treaties recently concluded by the United States. It would replace an outmoded list of extraditable offenses with a modern 'dual criminality' approach, which would enable extradition for such offenses as money laundering and other newer offenses not appearing on the list from the 1900 Treaty. The Treaty also contains a modernized 'political offense' clause and provides that extradition shall not be refused based on the nationality of the person sought. Finally, the Treaty incorporates a series of procedural improvements to streamline and speed the extradition process. I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration to the Treaty and give its advice and consent to its ratification."
