251.11 Insull, Samuel/457: Telegram

The Ambassador in Turkey (Skinner) to the Secretary of State

20. Department’s 8, March 29, 11 p.m. Extradition treaty will be ratified promptly but we are proceeding regardless of treaty under article 9 of penal code which enables Government to grant extradition in proper cases. Government propose as measure of courtesy to the United States to accept cabled documents. I am now preparing and will transfer them to Istanbul court before which Insull will be taken. I am asking for extradition and anticipate that court will grant it.
