Civilian Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act: Federal Contractor Criminal Liability Overseas
Charles Doyle (au)
The U.S. government uses hundreds of thousands of civilian contractors and employees overseas. They and their dependants are often subject to local prosecution for the crimes they commit abroad. Whether by agreement, practice, or circumstance šůÓ sometimes they are not. The Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act (MEJA) permits federal prosecution of certain crimes committed abroad by Defense Dept. (DOD) civilian employees, contractors, or their dependants. This report discusses the Civilian Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act (CEJA; H.R. 2136) and S. 1145, which would permit federal prosecution for certain crimes committed abroad by the civilian employees, dependants, or contractors of other federal agencies. The bills would supplement rather than replace MEJA or other provisions of federal extraterritorial jurisdiction. The crimes covered would include various federal violent, corruption, and trafficking offenses. The Attorney General would be responsible to ensure the availability of personnel and other resources necessary for investigation and prosecution of such offenses. Otherwise applicable statutes of limitation would be suspended during the absence of a suspect from the U.S.. Prosecutors would be afforded the additional option of trying cases under CEJA in the district in which the employing or contracting agency maintained its headquarters. This is a print on demand report.
