Louis Antonacci


Louis Antonacci, an attorney for the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, argues that foreign nationals incarcerated in United States state prisons, who are nationals of countries that are parties to the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons, have a right to be notified of their right to request a transfer. Furthermore, these international prison transfer regimes, of which the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons is but one, and which the United States is a signatory, should apply with equal force in state prison and proceedings as it does in federal prisons and proceedings. The disparate treatment of foreign nationals determined by state or federal incarceration creates a divided front in foreign policy. The views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not reflect those of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
