Sec. 18-91a. International transfer or exchange of prisoners.
- If a treaty 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 Commissioner of Correction may, on behalf of the state and subject to the terms of the treaty, consent to the transfer or exchange of offenders and take any other action necessary to initiate the participation of the state in the treaty. No offender shall be transferred or exchanged under this section unless he consents to such transfer or exchange.
- In the event that a foreign national, incarcerated pursuant to the laws of the state, is barred from transferring pursuant to such a treaty due to the indeterminate nature of his sentence, the Board of Pardons may, after full review of the foreign national's record, set a determined date. This date shall be considered only for purposes of facilitating international transfer of the foreign national and shall not be considered viable or actionable for any other purpose nor shall such date create any expectation or guarantee of release.
- The Commissioner of Correction may designate a person to administer the program for the international transfer of prisoners pursuant to this section.
