24-60-2301 - Transfer or exchange of foreign nationals convicted of a crime - authorization by governor.
If a treaty in effect between the United States and a foreign country provides for the transfer or exchange of convicted offenders to the country of which they are citizens or nationals, the governor may, on behalf of the state and subject to the terms of the treaty, authorize the executive director of the department of corrections to consent to the transfer or exchange of offenders and take any other action necessary to initiate the participation of this state in the treaty. Such transfer will not occur until the convicted offender is informed in his native language of his rights and of the procedures being followed.
