[edit] Background

During a 1989 raid on a Family Home in Bahia Blanca, Argentina, Brian Edward Pickus was arrested and held for extradition on an oustanding Interpol warrant from the United States on charges of burglary, kidnapping and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. He promptly posted a $70,000 USD bond in cash and was released pending legal appeals. Two federal courts, including an appeals court, in Bahia Blanca ordered him extradited to the United States. In November 1996, his appeal of those rulings reached the Supreme Court of Argentina. In February 1997, the Supreme Court sent the case back to a lower court in Bahia Blanca for further review. The lower court once again ordered Pickus extradited to the United States. This ruling was appealed to the Supreme Court which, in April 1998, again sent the case back to a lower court in Bahia Blanca for further review. The April 1998 opinion considered whether burglary was an extaditable offense and if Pickus was wanted only for that crime or whether the arrest warrant was based on other charges including kidnapping. According to a July 11, 1998 article in the Argentine newspaper La Prensa, on July 10, 1998, the Supreme Court affirmed the final decision of the lower court and ordered that Pickus be captured and extradited to the United States. However, Pickus was not captured and fled to Brazil. In 1999, federal charge of "unlawful flight to avoid prosecution" against Pickus was dismissed on the basis that the state of Hawaii had declined to prosecute Pickus on the original charges.
