You can't arrest an elected President of a sovereign state.

The US can't even arrest a foreign diplomat unless they obtain a permission from the government of such country to waive such person's immunity clause.

A president can only be arrested if found guilty of war crimes by the UN security council as stated in international humanitarian law.

Summary: If Atiku is elected as a President, he can't be arrested in the United States!

US cannot arrest him on a diplomatic mission, otherwise, Ahmadenijad or Castro would have been locked up long time ago

I believe you are not interested in international.

--- General Manuel Noreiga was a de-facto dictator ---de facto means "in practice but not necessarily ordained by law"----

----- The Republic of Panama declared war on the United States, which means that US citizens in Panama weren't safe, it's the US's responsibility to protect its own.

--- The General being a military dictator was known to have abused human rights and was a drug dealer, the US felt just to restore democracy and combat drug trafficking.

@ toba, someone is a president only in his country, the evil that men/women do lives with them. If Atiku is elected as president wldn't he travel to America if not for other reason but to attend U. N summit?
Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by Nobody: 11:05pm On Dec 03, 2010
Has he been convicted by anybody?

I am sorry but this question has inferiority complex written over it.

The President of Nigeria can not be arrested just like that, no matter who he or she may be.
Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by appletango: 11:14pm On Dec 03, 2010

he has just spent the past week in europe and will be traveling to the US in the next few weeks to give a series of lectures.

^^^^

You thinking that your President, whoever he is, will be arrested in a Foreign Land is inferiority complex.

No elected President of any sovereign lady can be arrested anywhere by anybody. It is against international laws and the fact that you are even thinking about it smacks of ignorance and inferiority complex.
Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by Becomrich11: 12:55am On Dec 04, 2010
they dont arrest president. even if he has no warrant against him now, he cant be arrested. Even if the warrant is just within a state in the USA. He can travel to other state within the USA, if he want to go and clear his name.
Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by evilspirit: 12:55am On Dec 04, 2010
inferiority to what now? look at this fool who doesn't know the meaning of inferiority complex.search your dictionary it doesnt apply here.YOU MIGHT SAY  IGNORANCE BUT TO SAY INFERIORITY COMPLEX YOU ARE A BABOON.MR IM ENLIGHTENED!!!!!!
Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by udezue(m): 1:04am On Dec 04, 2010
He won't be President so the thread is pointless.

You are feeling inferior to either a whiteman or whoever is the Non-Nigerian you think will arrest your President, who is also the leader of a sovereign Nation.

So there is a clear case of inferiority complex. Can you imagine an American suggesting that his President could be arrested if he visits Nigeria?

Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by jaygetta(m): 3:24am On Dec 04, 2010
Even if he's not President he still can't be arrested. Talk all u want, but some people are "unarrestable". Atiku is one of those. Some people are above the law,
Re: What Happens If Atiku Is Arrested Outside The Country If He Becomes President by Nsiman(m): 5:35am On Dec 04, 2010

The difference is that Atiku is a wanted man in the US. He and his wife ran away from America to avoid appearing in court cases for which they could be imprisoned for pretty seriou crimes. The US has really raised the stakes on money laundering (in the patriot act) since 9/11 and amongst other infringements, Atiku laundered 40 billa.
Some of Atiku's relations with murky groups in the ND, also make him a person of interest to the wider World. Here is a man whose criminality might be intense enough to affect the price of crude. . . Not a laughing matter.

The day Atiku steps in the US, he will be put under lock and key. Damn, it might even be a straight swap, we get access to Cheney, they get Atiku.
