(from Ch. 60, par. 22)

Sec. 5.

Extradition of persons imprisoned or awaiting trial in another state or who have left the demanding state under compulsion.

When it is desired to have returned to this State a person charged in this State with a crime, and such person is imprisoned or is held under criminal proceedings then pending against him in another state, the Governor of this State may agree with the Executive Authority of such other state for the extradition of such person before the conclusion of such proceedings or his term of sentence in such other state, upon condition that such person be returned to such other state at the expense of this State as soon as the prosecution in this State is terminated.

The Governor of this State may also surrender on demand of the Executive Authority of any other state any person in this State who is charged in the manner provided in Section 23 of this Act with having violated the laws of the state whose Executive Authority is making the demand, even though such person left the demanding state involuntarily.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, any person incarcerated in any federal facility may be released to the custody of the duly accredited officers or designees of those officers of a foreign state if:

(1) the person has violated the terms of his or her

    

probation, post-release supervision, or parole or has an unexpired sentence in the foreign state;

(2) the foreign state has personal jurisdiction over

    

that person; and

(3) the foreign state has issued a valid warrant for

    

the apprehension of that person or has issued a commitment order to serve a sentence in a state or local correctional facility. For that purpose no formalities shall be required other than establishing the authority of the officer and the identity of the person to be apprehended. All legal requirements to obtain extradition of fugitives from justice are expressly waived by the State of Illinois as to those persons.
