    COMPREHENSIVE CRIME CONTROL ACT OF 1983


              SzP-rrma 20, 1983.-Ordered to be printed


      Mr. PERcY, from the Committee on Foreign Relations,
                    submitted the following

                         REPORT
                       [To accompany S. 1762]

  The Committee on Foreign Relations, to which was referred sequen-
tially from the Committee on the Judiciary the bill, S. 1762, for the
purpose only of considering Part M of Title X, the political offense
and related provisions, having considered the same, reports favorably
thereon with amendments and recommends that the bill as amended
do pass.                    PROSE

  The purpose of Part M, Title X, of S. 1762, is to modernize federal
practices and procedures with respect to international extradition. The
amendments to S. 1762 proposed by the Committee on Foreign Rela-
tions are technical in nature and intended to ensure that the bill con-
forms to the Committee's intent when on May 19, 1982, it approved
amendments to S. 1940, The Extradition Act of 1981.
  As reported first by the Committee on the Judiciary and now by the
Committee on Foreign Relations, S. 1762 retains limited court juris-
diction with respect to application of the political offense exception
in international extradition proceedings and provides specific guid-
ance to the courts in making such findings. It also provides the Secre-
tary of State with sole authority to inqhire into the motivation of the
foreign state in requesting extradition and to determine whether ex-
tradition would be incompatible with humanitarian considerations. In
making either of the above determinations, the Secretary would be
required to consult with the appropriate Bureaus and Offices of the
Department of State, including the Bureau of Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs.
