      Hi, All..


      Check this out:
      http://travel.state.gov/law/info/judicial/judicial_683.html

      CRIMINAL CASES: The Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure do not
      provide for the issuance of requests for judicial assistance.
      Consequently, Rule 57, Fed. R. Crim. P., applies. Rule 57 provides in
      pertinent part: "In all cases not provided for by rule, the district
      judges and magistrates may regulate their practice in any manner not
      inconsistent with these rules or those of the district in which they
      act". Evidence, including documents and the testimony of witnesses,
      may properly be sought by means of a request for judicial assistance
      before or after formal charges have been made. United States v.
      Reagan, supra, 453 F2d at 173 n.4; In Re Grand Jury 81-2, 550 F.
      Supp. 24, 29 (W.D. Mich, 1982); United States v. Strong, supra, 608
      F. Supp. at 194.

      It state's that, "... the district judges and magistrates may
      regulate their practice in ANY MANNER NOT INCONSISTENT with these
      rules...." So, why don't we ask for international "assistance" per a
      letter of rogatory?
