Non extradition countries

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Lets just say that you did something /really bad/ and had to leave the U.S. What countries can you go to that the U.S. would have an extremely hard time or no luck at all extraditing you from?

Seeing that you wouldn't be an official citizen of the country that your hiding out in I'm guessing that the laws would be easier to get you transported back to the U.S. if you got caught?

Belize - They won't extradite your ass, they use the US dollar and half of the population speaks English.

At least, that's what this accountant I knew said. He fled the country after their was the big tax fraud sting on one of our state's former governors.

It's been three years, and I haven't heard from him again. Either he's in Belize or federal pound me in the ass prison.

I don't really know.

Not me, but a friend of mine at the college that I went to...

He was doing some accounting work and getting paid more than he should. IRS comes down on the little side business and finds that it leads back to former Governor (he died in 2003, this shit happened 1999-2001).

My friend started panicking, because he didn't want to go to jail. Plus, he wanted to keep his cash.

So, he said that he was going on vacation.

It wasn't until a month later that we found out that he skipped the country.

I noticed a couple of the countries that have no extradition treaties and no diplomatic relations with the US do have a lot of US influence on their economies, and the US gives them assistance. The question is, will the country still give you citizenship? or at least let you hide out there for the rest of your life? 

 

So lets say you run off to one of these countries that doesn't extradite, how hard is it then to gain legal work, home, etc., in said country?

My guess would be: extremely difficult. If you're thinking a life like that would be easy, you're delusional. However, it's probably preferable to the aforementioned 'pound-me-in-the-ass' federal penitentiary. 

 

In other words, flee like the wind! 

 

Didn't Clooney in Burn After Reading go to Venezuela? South America seems like a great option. They successfully housed Nazis, and whatever you did probably pales in comparison.

OK not for nothing, but your information is incorrect. Belize does not use the US dollar, they accept it but they still use Queen Elizabeth money. However, it is somewhat true that its hard to get an American criminal out of Belize. However there is extradtion as of the year 2000. But the American Government would have to go through s rediculous process to do so.

That's because he's actually John McAfee.
