Suspect in slaying won't be extradited
At a press briefing Tuesday in his Chicago office, Jean-Baptiste de Boissiere, the French consul general, said that the letters "misinterpret" the treaty and French law. He said French law makes it illegal to extradite any national.
According to the story Peterson will be tried in a French court. That is absolutely amazing. They are going to charge him with a crime that didn't even occur in their country. How would a prosecutor even prepare for that case? Do they send investigators here? Are the detectives from the case notified to appear in a French Court? It would have to be impossible to prosecute a case like this. So in the end this guy would more then likely walk.
The hypocrisy of it all is that the French still want Noriega extradited to France on a money laundering charge.
