Sec. 1732. Release of citizens imprisoned by foreign governments

Whenever it is made known to the President that any citizen of

release so demanded is unreasonably delayed or refused, the

President shall use such means, not amounting to acts of war and

not otherwise prohibited by law, as he may think necessary and

proceedings relative thereto shall as soon as practicable be

communicated by the President to Congress.
