THE DECISION by Israel's Supreme Court to refuse extradition of Samuel Sheinbein to stand trial for murder in Maryland violates Israel's treaty of extradition with the United States.It mocks the proud and law-abiding dual citizenship of some 50,000 U.S.-Israeli citizens by making Israel a haven for other accused criminals fleeing justice. It compromises Israel's friendly relations with the United States.The decision also is the rule of law. Israel's Supreme Court found that a domestic law of 1978 takes precedence over the 1963 treaty obligation.

The attorney for a Silver Spring father yesterday asked Maryland's highest court not to revoke his client's law license, even though he helped his son flee to Israel to avoid murder charges at home. Sol Sheinbein helped his son Samuel Sheinbein, 17, after the teen-ager told him he and a friend killed 19-year-old Alfredo E. Tello Jr. in September 1997, according to court records. The father's actions came after Montgomery County police searched the family's home, and after he agreed to tell police if he learned his missing son's whereabouts.

SAMUEL Sheinbein did not get away with the crime. His 1997 murder and dismemberment of a friend, Alfredo Enrique Tello Jr., in Montgomery County is not going unpunished.It is regrettable and wrong that Sheinbein is not to be judged, sentenced and incarcerated under Maryland law. Nonetheless, the plea bargain to be heard in an Israeli court next Thursday represents good-faith efforts by Israeli prosecutors to make the best of a bad Israeli law and worse Israeli Supreme Court decision that prevented extradition to Maryland.

A patent lawyer accused of helping his son flee to Israel to avoid murder charges in Maryland faces possible disciplinary actions by the state's highest court. The Attorney Grievance Commission did not specify in its court petition what punishment it is seeking against the lawyer, Sol Sheinbein, but disbarment is possible under court rules. Sheinbein helped his son, Samuel, escape to Israel in 1997 when he knew the 17-year-old probably was involved in the killing, dismemberment and burning of 19-year-old Alfredo Enrique Tello Jr., part of whose body was found Sept.

This an excerpt of a Miami Herald editorial published Saturday:SOME people think that they're slick. Catch 'em in a lie, and they'll weasel out of it. Catch 'em red-handed, and they'll look for a loophole in the law.Take Samuel Sheinbein. He's the 18-year-old Montgomery County, Md., youth who suddenly, and conveniently, got a hankering for his father's birthplace, Israel, just as the local police had decided that he was the prime suspect in a brutal murder. Three days after police found the charred and mutilated body of Alfredo Enrique Tello, Mr. Sheinbein slipped off to Israel.
