Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the European convention on Extradition. The contracting parties undertake to surrender to each other, subject to the provisions and conditions laid down in this convention, all persons against whom the competent authorities of the requesting party are preceding for an offence or who are wanted by the said authorities for the carrying out of a sentence or detention order. Extradition for offences under military law which are not offences under ordinary criminal law is excluded from the application of this convention. Extradition shall be granted, in accordance with the provisions of this convention, for offences in connection with taxes, duties, customs and exchange only if the contracting parties have so decided in respect of any such offence or category of offences. Except where this convention otherwise provides, the procedure with regard to extradition and provisional arrest shall be governed solely by the law of the requested party.
