Whenever I watch movies where people are on the run w/ money…I always wonder why they don’t hop a plane to the first country w/ no extradition treaty w/ the US. It just seems so logical. Or…at least kill someone before you leave, so those countries that won’t extradite b/c your country believes in the death penalty will keep you. (Is Canada one of those?? I thought maybe it was.)
I always wonder though, if they’ll just make you come back for the non-fatal crimes…
Canadian law won’t extradite while the death penalty is on the table, which leaves 2 options:
1)Remove the death penalty from the equation and have them extradited on the murder charge with the assurance they’ll not get executed
2) Have them extradited for a lesser charge, like the theft of the money. Then they’re not extraditing on a charge for which there’s a death penalty
I wouldn’t do that. I don’t want to serve a life sentence while my loot lies waiting. I’d have it transferred to an offshore account and leave the country. If you fancied you could bribe an official in another country to fabricate an alter ego for you; new passport, birth certificate, whole new history via official records. In some countries the very-higher-ups are for sale. With all that and growing a moustache or something you could re-enter the UK or the US and live there happily on the money (if there was enough) instead of spending the rest of your like in a far away land.
