So now there's chatter Harvey Weinstein will be criminally prosecuted.

How does the Right of Return intersect with criminal extradition proceedings?

Anyone know?

It doesn’t they extradite unless they face death penalty which is what European nations do too

He's going to "sex rehab" in Europe. Are any of the rape allegations recent? I thought it was all very old.

Crazy Eddie got away but the Feds busted his brother the Cfo for cooking the books.

I believe the Israelis won't harbor a fugitive unless they are facing injustice in their home country (they are sheltering an oligarch who fell out of Putin's favor).

They famously denied Meyer Lansky (the basis for the Godfather character Hyman Roth who was also turned back in the movie).

They did take scheinbein but wouldn’t send him to the USA because he was facing the death penalty. All EU countries world have refused to send him back too for the same reason
