Hoxha v. Levi, 05-3149
Denial of petition for writ of habeas corpus following an application for the petitioner's extradition by the government of Albania is affirmed over petitioner's arguments that: 1) the magistrate judge should have allowed testimony at the extradition hearing by recanting witnesses; 2) the extradition treaty between Albania and the US is invalid; and 3) he should not be returned to Albania because he will face torture and possible death there.
