Agreement On Extradition Between The European Union And The United States Of America

Since the United States of America and the Republic of Croatia do not have a bilateral mutual legal assistance treaty in force, the mutual legal assistance agreement between the United States and Croatia is a sub-treaty that regulates only matters governed by the mutual legal aid agreement between the United States and the European Union, including: identification of bank information, joint investigation teams, videoconference, expedited transmission of , assistance to administrative authorities, restrictions on use, confidentiality and reasons for refusal. This approach is consistent with other Eu-Member States (Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Malta, Portugal, Slovak Republic and Slovenia) with which the United States does not have an existing mutual legal aid agreement. This agreement does not impede the conclusion of bilateral agreements between a Member State and the United States of America, in accordance with this agreement, after it enters into force. With respect to the deliberations and approval of the Senate for ratification, I herein convey the agreement between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Republic of Croatia, as referred to in Article 3, paragraph 2, of Article 25.
