(b) Any person incarcerated in any federal facility may be released to the custody of the duly accredited officers, or such officer's designees, of a foreign state, if:
(1) Such person has violated the terms of such person's probation, postrelease supervision, parole or who has an unexpired sentence in the foreign state;
(2) the foreign state has personal jurisdiction over such person; and
(3) the foreign state has issued a valid warrant for the apprehension of such person. For that purpose no formalities shall be required other than establishing the authority of the officer and the identity of the person to be apprehended. All legal requirements to obtain extradition of fugitives from justice are hereby expressly waived by the state of Kansas, as to such persons.
