    Doesn't seem to cover Snowmen: there's a list of offenses none of which seem applicable here (maybe breaking into a government office, but that seems like a stretch).  unlike modern treaties, there's no catchall provision ("any crime punishable by both countries by prison of longer than year," for example.)

    between the narrow treaty and the political relationship between the countries, Venezuela would probably be a good choice.

    note: I'm certainly no intl law expert (unless we're talking tax!), so I'm happy for the above to be clarified or corrected.
