Section B. Extradition
In the Barbie extradition case in 1974, Bolivia’s Supreme Court turned down France’s request for the extradition of Klaus Barbie, the head of the Gestapo in Lyon during the Second World War, who had been found guilty of war crimes in absentia. The rejection was based on the absence of an extradition treaty between the two States.
