Easiest thing to do? Sentence him to Death here, and tell the US it's finished with... a death sentence here (for piracy or treason) no longer involves actual death, just life imprisonment, and the gov' could put him in an open prison, so basically a hotel with a curfew, and he wouldn't even have to stop. Or pay rent. Or bills. Or taxes...
