Office of International Judicial Assistance

JUDICIAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS

The OIJA does not handle requests for judicial assistance in criminal matters, including requests made pursuant to mutual legal assistance treaties. Requests relating to criminal matters should be forwarded to the Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs (OIA). The OIJA will forward any Letters of Request deemed to pertain to criminal matters to the OIA, and likewise the OIA will forward to OIJA Letters of Request that it concludes pertain to civil or commercial matters.
