Extraterritoriality & Extradition


Active extraterritoriality is recognized for SEC related offences but depending on certain conditions (the offender must be located in Venezuelan territory or part of the crime must have been committed in Venezuelan territory). In these cases the principle of double criminality does not apply. Passive extraterritoriality is not recognized.

There is no general provisions on extradition under Venezuelan law. SEC related offences could be extraditable on the basis of specific bilateral extradition agreements ratified by Venezuela which go beyond the scope of this analysis. In any case no Venezuelan nationals can be extradited and double criminality is required.
