criminal law federal developments

The U.S. federal, state, and even local governments have adapted the territorial reach of their criminal laws to permit punishment of "new and complex crimes" when elements of extraterritoriality exist. The proactive extension of its extraterritorial jurisdiction has resulted in transformation of the law of jurisdiction and has led to occasional tension with other governments. While this discussion concerns primarily federal law, similar developments have occurred on a subnational level, where states and even municipalities continually expand their jurisdiction to meet criminal threats from an increasingly borderless world, where technology, transportation, and free-trade developments enable criminals to move money, capital, goods, people, and ideas instantaneously.

This discussion outlines the conceptual bases of jurisdiction and then applies it to recent developments in U.S. law, especially with respect to terrorism, narcotics, and alien smuggling. The article also describes the jurisdiction of military courts-martial, the use of proactive investigative and policing techniques abroad, the limits on the enforcement of foreign penal judgments, and basic principles governing jurisdiction between state and federal courts, and conflict-of-laws in the criminal context.

Dear Sir

Fristsetzungsantrag in der Sache Jad ALHALABI, Zl. 14478601-001

Good day to you. this my case and evidence .

My name is Jad Alhalabi,I am currently seeking asylum in Austria, but the Austria government is following the human rights and justice and they are correct but I can prove it through my documents that they are not.

Before three years ago I asked for a right refuge in Austria, and I waited for more than two years and half for the answer.

At the end the authorities in Austrian told me that I had negative answer in my case, at that time the Austrian authorities closed my case and I became hopeless for that, I decided to go to Sweden to ask for new right refugee, after three months later when I was in Sweden they told me that the Austrian authorities ask to bring me back to Austrian (for what? I do not know).

I arrived to Vienna airport at 21/03/2014. I surprised the policemen in the air port shouted on me, attacked me, hit me and took me to prison,

And I am not safe here in Austria ?

The Jordanian government kill me in in quick time and the policeman was beating me and the reason he asked for my rights there(I declare the Gospel) , but the Austrian government kill me in a very slow long time and so-called political persecution to humans as a refugee, but the Austrian government stole my money under the cover of human rights and I have evidence of this in the papers.
where to run to take (the International Protection) ?!!!!!!, please give me Answer ?

Please check the attachments for my case and evidence.
Thank you very much for taking your time.

And for you all respect and thanks

Jad alhalabi
