    It would be a political decision, so who knows.

    I am by far no expert but it appears that actually our treaty with Itally specifically states that we wont extradite if the person is danger of facing double jeapardy:

    Article 6:

    Err refusing to extradite because of the death penalty is standard part of all these treaties. Only way the US can get anyone is if they agree not to go for the death penalty.

    Pete, are you Peter Schmeichel? He's Danish too. Or not 'too' if he's you, of course. Then it would be you're Danish. Still. You know what I mean.

    Do you work for the organisation, Pete? Or are you just supportive of the great project?

    That's also not true, but besides the point allowances are made for major law or custom. And it is part of these treaties indeed. I didn't say Canada had to extradite to us in cases involving the death penalty because they have a treaty with us. No, instead Canada has no death penalty and will not.extradite in capital cases as is their right as a sovereign country. Local custom and culture is accounted for in these treaties.

    And popularised by the gutter press as if it says anything about her character. What was a nickname, self coined or not, to reference her footballing skills is translated into upfront salaciousness.

    Don't exaggerate. I'm not saying it's a complimentary nickname, but it's hardly a calumny. Are you forgetting that she's a convicted murderer? What does that say about her character?

    Exagerrate? It's Daily Mail fodder, surprised you'd buy into it.

    And I'm confused by the premise that technically it's not double jeopardy what's happening now, yet she's a convicted murderer. Regardless, she wouldn't be the first person wrongfully convicted in history, so it doesn't say much.

    You do realize you agreed with me and said it was not true? You state that Canada has no death penalty will not extradite in capital cases as is their right as sovereign country... yea and it is not a capital case because the US agrees not to go down that road?
