To serve such a purpose in 1923 was created the International Criminal Police Organization, known as "Interpol". This institution has branches in all countries that have signed agreements of international criminal cooperation, as well as Interpol Tirana. These are bodies that help in different ways the extradition of wanted persons.The purpose of this paper is to give an overview on extradition procedures and the way it is fixed by international and national laws.
