Increased Importance of Extradition Law
The foundation of an Extradition and International Crimes Committee is clear evidence of the growing importance of extradition law in Israel. As Israel tightens its international economic and diplomatic relationships with many countries all over the world, it’s only natural that these relationships also led to collaborations in the field of extradition and criminal law.
Extradition laws in Israel are based on international treaties which the State is a part of. There are few examples of this: the Convention on Organized Crime (The Palermo Convention), the UN Convention Against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Substances (The Vienna Convention), cyber-crimes, money laundering computer crimes, taxation, international crime and of course Interpol and more. Also, Israel has signed individual agreements with specific collaborations for fighting crime and extradition with various countries, including the US, Canada, Australia, Thailand, and others.
