Chapter Summary

The Contracting State in the territory of which the alleged offender is found shall be obliged to submit the case to its competent authorities for the purpose of prosecution if he is not extradited. If a Party which makes extradition conditional on the existence of a treaty receives a request for extradition from another Party with which it has no extradition treaty, it may consider the Convention as the legal basis for extradition in respect of any offence to which the article applies. The Parties shall endeavour to expedite extradition procedures and to simplify evidentiary requirements. The Parties may consider entering into bilateral or multilateral agreements, whether ad hoc or general, on the transfer to their country of persons sentenced to imprisonment and other forms of deprivation of liberty for offences to which the article applies, in order that they may complete their sentences there.
