Question Taken At the May 13, 2005 Daily Press Briefing

Extradition Request from Venezuela for Luis Posada Carriles (Taken Question)

Question:   The Venezuelan government reportedly claims that it sent the United States a request for the provisional arrest of Cuban exile Luis Posada Carriles? Can you confirm that claim?

Answer:   It is not our usual practice to comment on extradition matters. However, since the Venezuelan government made its announcement, in this case,  we can confirm the receipt of a request, which we will process in accordance with the normal procedures applicable to such requests. I refer you to the Department of Justice for additional information.
