E.O. 12958: DECL: 10/17/2010 TAGS: PREL PTER CJAN IZ YM COUNTER TERRORISM SUBJECT: YEMEN-IRAQ: NO EVIDENCE OF AN EXTRADITION TREATY
REF: STATE 174132
Classified By: A/DCM TOM BURKE, FOR REASONS 1.4 (B) AND (D).
(C) Post has consulted a variety of sources to determine, per reftel instructions, if an extradition treaty or other mechanism exists between the ROYG and the Transitional National Government of Iraq, but has not found any evidence of such an agreement. The Foreign Minister and his deputy told Ambassador that they were not aware of an extradition treaty. An official at the Iraqi Embassy in Sanaa told Pol/Econ FSN the same. Searches conducted by Embassy staff via the Internet and Library of Congress also did not turn up any indications of a treaty. Post will report immediately if we receive any different information on this issue. Krajeski
