UNCLAS THE HAGUE 002507

SIPDIS

L/T FOR DAPHNE COOK; L/LEI FOR PROPP; PARIS FOR DOJ KHARRIS

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: KCRM PREL FR NL
SUBJECT: NETHERLANDS/FRANCE: INSTRUMENTS SIGNED FOR
EXTRADITION AND MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE

REF: TRAUB/COOK EMAILS OF 9/30 AND PREVIOUS

1. Embassy pouched to L/T on September 30 signed instruments
relating to mutual legal assistance and extradition,
concluded between the Netherlands the United States and
between France and the United States, registered pouch
numbers 1530586 and 1530587. The Netherlands/US instruments
were signed by AG Ashcroft and Minister of Justice Donner on
September 29 in The Hague. The French/US instruments were
signed by AG Ashcroft and Minister of Justice Peren on
September 30 in The Hague.

2. We pouched original copies of the Full Powers from both
the French and Dutch Ministers of Justice. We enclosed the
original Note from the Netherlands replying to our Note
Verbale associated with the instruments. Finally, we
returned extra unused paper and morrocans sent earlier by the
Department. As soon as Embassy receives the original Full
Powers for AG Ashcroft, we will provide them to the French
and Dutch reps here to replace the faxed copies we exchanged
before the signings. (Note: For the Netherlands/US
instruments, both the Dutch and English language texts were
printed and bound by the Treaty Office at the Dutch Ministry
of Foreign Affairs in the presence of Poloff. For the
France/US instruments, the English texts were printed by
Poloff using files e-mailed from the Department (L/T), owing
to the fact that the English language printed pages from the
Department were delayed in shipment. The French provided the
printed French language texts. Poloff and French Embassy
counterpart bound those texts. End note.)
