The act of removing an individual from one jurisdiction to another without legal process. Extradition is the judicially supervised removal of individuals from one jurisdiction to another. Rendition, in the contemporary (ca. 2006)context refers to extra-legal removal. Alleged "enemy combatants" were transported from the United States to foreign countries without being charged with a crime so that the individual could be interrogated using methods not allowed by the Geneva Convention or the United States Constitution.
The United States policy of rendition lead to the torture of the suspected terrorist in a jail in Syria.
