(1) ALTHOUGH LEGAL ADVISOR LEDEZMA AND MININTERIOR CASTRO 
APPARENTLY HAVE SOMETHING ELSE IN MIND, PROCEDURE OUT- 
LINED IN REFTEL, PARTICULARLY NECESSITY TO SUBMIT REQUEST 
AND DOCUMENTS TO FOREIGN OFFICE, APPEARS TO US TO BE SAME 
AS THAT FOR EXTRADITION REQUEST. WHILE DEPARTMENT KNOWS 
THAT BOLIVIA ON OCCASION EXPELS ITS OWN CITIZENS, WE ARE 
UNAWARE OF ANY FORMAL PROCEDURE BY WHICH GOB CAN DO THIS 
AT REQUEST OF ANOTHER GOVERNMENT OTHER THAN BY EXTRADI- 
TION. DEPARTMENT FEARS FOREIGN OFFICE WOULD VIEW PRO 
CEDURE AS EXTRACTION WHICH RAISES POLITICAL RISK DIS- 
CUSSED IN REFTEL (A), NOTWITHSTANDING THE GOOD FAITH OF 
MINISTRY OF INTERIOR OFFICIALS. IF EMBASSY PERSUADED 
PROCEDURE IS SOMETHING SHORT OF EXTRADITION, PLEASE 
EXPLAIN IN GREATER DETAIL AND COMMENT ON WHAT CHANCES

(2) IF PROCESS DESCRIBED IS EXTRADITION IN FACT, DEPART- 
MENT SHARES EMBASSY VIEW THAT TO GO THIS ROUTE WOULD PRO- 
BABLY NOT BE FRUITFUL. WE WOULD RATHER CONTINUE TO SEEK 
OTHER METHODS TO SECURE HIS CUSTODY. THAN RISK JEOPARDIZ- 
ING THE HIGH DEGREE OF BOLIVIAN COOPERATION IN GENERAL 
NARCOTICS MATTERS BY BECOMING EMBROILED IN AN EXTRADI- 
TION CASE THAT WE PROBABLY COULD NOT WIN ON LEGAL GROUNDS 
IN VIEW EXTRADITION TREATY DOES NOT COVER NARCOTICS NOR 
REQUIRE EXTRADITION OF CITIZENS. DEA CONCURS IN THIS 
CONCLUSION. 

(3) DID EMBASSY PROPOSE TO MININTERIOR THAT PENARANDO 
BE SENT ABROAD ON SOME KIND OF MISSION AS SUGGESTED 
REFTEL(B)? KISSINGER
