Excerpt from an article I read-Of course I have signed...I am just keeping up with the story and found this. BTW- Thanks for posting this Kyst.
Extraditions "inevitably come down to political and diplomatic considerations far more than they do legal ones," Vladeck said. There's political tension between the two countries. The southern African country has blamed its economic woes on U.S. sanctions against President Robert Mugabe and close associates, though many commentators have attributed Zimbabwe's economic decline to mismanagement. Washington imposed the penalties on Zimbabwe because of human rights concerns. More broadly, Mugabe has long railed against what he calls Western meddling in Africa, saying it is an extension of the colonial rule of the past.
Ohlin said the U.S. could analyze the justice system in Zimbabwe to determine whether it's fair and whether the prisons there are up to human rights standards. The Associated Press has reported that prisoners in Zimbabwe rioted earlier this year because they hadn't been served meat in three years, and that the food woes were evidence of a debilitating economic downturn that has left the government struggling to meet obligations.
If prison conditions are "unduly harsh," the U.S. could deny extradition, Ohlin said. Plus, Vladeck noted about any extradition, "There might be concerns about the precedent it sets for U.S. tourists overseas."
IF THE U.S. ALLOWS EXTRADITION, WHAT CAN THE DENTIST DO? Palmer could waive extradition or his attorney could contest it, arguing that extradition does not fall under the treaty, Ohlin said. At that point, the defense could ask the judge to resolve the issue, which could take months, Ohlin said.
"If he contests extradition," Ohlin said, "I would think he would probably lose his case, but there are a lot of creative arguments his lawyers could make." While Palmer's case is high profile, Vladeck said, "the actual legal questions are actually routine and mundane."
Associated Press writers Steven R. Hurst and Matthew Lee in Washington and Farai Mutsaka in Harare, Zimbabwe, contributed to this report.
I might make some people mad here. I don't think he should be extradited for poor guides in a land he is not aware of. here are the facts I'm seeing, he purchased the permits for this hunt and he hunted this lion the legal way(bow and arrow). I'm sure some people will say why was he hunting a lion for sport yes , I agree the hunt was unnecessary. If the lion was to be hunted it should have been hunted for food or because it was dangerous to the environment of the inhabitants. based on the facts im seeing his guides led him wrong and he in fact did mess up on the picking of the target, in which if you read the story there he informed the authorities of the hunt. he has also cooperated with authorities in the matter and extradition seems unneeded. what to me needs to happen is to have registered guides for such hunts and or ban these sport hunts all together so they do not happen at all for the sake of these hiccups not happening ever again. ian somerholder has started a foundation to end sport hunting if yall are interested. I don't agree with this hunt but I do agree he should not be punished for poor guidance from the locals. So at the end of the day you can disagree with me and that's fine , but the real illegal thing that happened here was that, that lion was not hunted for food and the betterment of a village.
It seems that he was fully aware that he was luring a collared lion off of a preserve.
