 <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


  October 29, 2001.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on the Judiciary and ordered to be printed.
To the Congress of the United States:
    Enclosed for the consideration of the Congress is a 
legislative proposal to implement the International Convention 
for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings and the International 
Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism. 
Also enclosed is a detailed explanation of the bill's 
provisions.
    Title I of the bill is entitled the ``Terrorist Bombings 
Convention Implementation Act of 2001.'' It would implement the 
International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist 
Bombings, which was signed by the United States on January 12, 
1998, and which was transmitted to the Senate for its advice 
and consent to ratification on September 8, 1999. In essence, 
the Convention imposes binding legal obligations upon State 
Parties either to submit for prosecution or to extradite any 
person within their jurisdiction who unlawfully and 
intentionally delivers, places, discharges, or detonates an 
explosive or other lethal device in, into, or against a place 
of public use, a State or government facility, a public 
transportation system, or an infrastructure facility. A State 
Party is subject to these obligations without regard to the 
place where the alleged act covered by the Convention took 
place. Twenty-eight States are currently party to the 
Convention, which entered into force internationally on May 23, 
2001.
    Title II of the bill is entitled the ``Suppression of the 
Financing of Terrorism Convention Implementation Act of 2001.'' 
It would implement the International Convention for the 
Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, which was signed by 
the United States on January 10, 2000, and which was 
transmitted to the Senate for its advice and consent to 
ratification on October 12, 2000. The Convention imposes 
binding legal obligations upon State Parties either to submit 
for prosecution or to extradite any person within their 
jurisdiction who unlawfully and wilfully provides or collects 
funds with the intention that they should be used to carry out 
various terrorist activities. A State Party is subject to these 
obligations without regard to the place where the alleged act 
covered by the Convention took place. The Convention is not yet 
in force internationally, but will enter into force on the 
thirtieth day following the date of the deposit of the twenty-
second instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval, or 
accession with the Secretary General of the United Nations.
    I urge the prompt and favorable consideration of this 
proposal.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, October 25, 2001.
