FOURTH ADDITIONAL PROTOCOL TO THE CONVENTION ON EXTRADITION
The member States of the Council of Europe, signatory to this Protocol,
Considering that the aim of the Council of Europe is to achieve greater unity between its members;
Desirous of strengthening their individual and collective ability to respond to crime;
Having regard to the provisions of the European Convention on Extradition (ETS No. 24) opened for signature in Paris on 13 December 1957 (hereinafter referred to as “the Convention”), as well as the three Additional Protocols thereto (ETS Nos. 86 and 98, CETS No. 209), done at Strasbourg on 15 October 1975, on 17 March 1978 and on 10 November 2010, respectively;
Considering it desirable to modernize a number of provisions of the Convention and supplement it in certain respects, taking into account the evolution of international co-operation in criminal matters since the entry into force of the Convention and the Additional Protocols thereto;
Have agreed as follows:
Article 1 – Lapse of time
Article 10 of the Convention shall be replaced by the following provisions:
“Lapse of time
1 Extradition shall not be granted when the prosecution or punishment of the person claimed has become statute-barred according to the law of the requesting Party.
2 Extradition shall not be refused on the ground that the prosecution or punishment of the person claimed would be statute-barred according to the law of the requested Party.
3 Any State may, at the time of signature or when depositing its instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession, declare that it reserves the right not to apply paragraph 2:
a when the request for extradition is based on offences for which that State has jurisdiction under its own criminal law; and/or
b if its domestic legislation explicitly prohibits extradition when the prosecution or punishment of the person claimed would be statute-barred according to its law.
4 When determining whether prosecution or punishment of the person sought would be statute-barred according to its law, any Party having made a reservation pursuant to paragraph 3 of this article shall take into consideration, in accordance with its law, any acts or events that have occurred in the requesting Party, in so far as acts or events of the same nature have the effect of interrupting or suspending time-limitation in the requested Party.”
Article 2 – The request and supporting documents
1 Article 12 of the Convention shall be replaced by the following provisions:
“The request and supporting documents
1 The request shall be in writing. It shall be submitted by the Ministry of Justice or other competent authority of the requesting Party to the Ministry of Justice or other competent authority of the requested Party. A State wishing to designate another competent authority than the Ministry of Justice shall notify the Secretary General of the Council of Europe of its competent authority at the time of signature or when depositing its instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession, as well as of any subsequent changes relating to its competent authority.
2 The request shall be supported by:
a a copy of the conviction and sentence or detention order immediately enforceable or of the warrant of arrest or other order having the same effect and issued in accordance with the procedure laid down in the law of the requesting Party;
b a statement of the offences for which extradition is requested. The time and place of their commission, their legal descriptions and a reference to the relevant legal provisions, including provisions relating to lapse of time, shall be set out as accurately as possible; and
c a copy of the relevant enactments or, where this is not possible, a statement of the relevant law and as accurate a description as possible of the person claimed, together with any other information which will help to establish his or her identity, nationality and location.”
2 Article 5 of the Second Additional Protocol to the Convention shall not apply as between Parties to the present Protocol.
Article 3 – Rule of speciality
Article 14 of the Convention shall be replaced by the following provisions:
“Rule of speciality
1 A person who has been extradited shall not be arrested, prosecuted, tried, sentenced or detained with a view to the carrying out of a sentence or detention order, nor shall he or she be for any other reason restricted in his or her personal freedom for any offence committed prior to his or her surrender other than that for which he or she was extradited, except in the following cases:
a when the Party which surrendered him or her consents. A request for consent shall be submitted, accompanied by the documents mentioned in Article 12 and a legal record of any statement made by the extradited person in respect of the offence concerned. Consent shall be given when the offence for which it is requested is itself subject to extradition in accordance with the provisions of this Convention. The decision shall be taken as soon as possible and no later than 90 days after receipt of the request for consent. Where it is not possible for the requested Party to comply with the period provided for in this paragraph, it shall inform the requesting Party, providing the reasons for the delay and the estimated time needed for the decision to be taken;
b when that person, having had an opportunity to leave the territory of the Party to which he or she has been surrendered, has not done so within 30 days of his or her final discharge, or has returned to that territory after leaving it.
2 The requesting Party may, however:
a carry out pre-trial investigations, except for measures restricting the personal freedom of the person concerned;
b take any measures necessary under its law, including proceedings by default, to prevent any legal effects of lapse of time;
c take any measures necessary to remove the person from its territory.
3 Any State may, at the time of signature or when depositing its instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession or at any later time, declare that, by derogation from paragraph 1, a requesting Party which has made the same declaration may, when a request for consent is submitted pursuant to paragraph 1.a, restrict the personal freedom of the extradited person, provided that:
a the requesting Party notifies, either at the same time as the request for consent pursuant to paragraph 1.a, or later, the date on which it intends to apply such restriction; and
b the competent authority of the requested Party explicitly acknowledges receipt of this notification.
The requested Party may express its opposition to that restriction at any time, which shall entail the obligation for the requesting Party to end the restriction immediately, including, where applicable, by releasing the extradited person.
4 When the description of the offence charged is altered in the course of proceedings, the extradited person shall only be proceeded against or sentenced in so far as the offence under its new description is shown by its constituent elements to be an offence which would allow extradition.”
Article 4 – Re-extradition to a third State
The text of Article 15 of the Convention shall become paragraph 1 of that article and shall be supplemented by the following second paragraph:
“2 The requested Party shall take its decision on the consent referred to in paragraph 1 as soon as possible and no later than 90 days after receipt of the request for consent, and, where applicable, of the documents mentioned in Article 12, paragraph 2. Where it is not possible for the requested Party to comply with the period provided for in this paragraph, it shall inform the requesting Party, providing the reasons for the delay and the estimated time needed for the decision to be taken.”
Article 5 – Transit
Article 21 of the Convention shall be replaced by the following provisions:
“Transit
1 Transit through the territory of one of the Contracting Parties shall be granted on submission of a request for transit, provided that the offence concerned is not considered by the Party requested to grant transit as an offence of a political or purely military character having regard to Articles 3 and 4 of this Convention.
2 The request for transit shall contain the following information:
a the identity of the person to be extradited, including his or her nationality or nationalities when available;
b the authority requesting the transit;
c the existence of an arrest warrant or other order having the same legal effect or of an enforceable judgment, as well as a confirmation that the person is to be extradited;
d the nature and legal description of the offence, including the maximum penalty or the penalty imposed in the final judgment;
e a description of the circumstances in which the offence was committed, including the time, place and degree of involvement of the person sought.
3 In the event of an unscheduled landing, the requesting Party shall immediately certify that one of the documents mentioned in Article 12, paragraph 2.a exists. This notification shall have the effect of a request for provisional arrest as provided for in Article 16, and the requesting Party shall submit a request for transit to the Party on whose territory this landing has occurred.
4 Transit of a national, within the meaning of Article 6, of a country requested to grant transit may be refused.
5 Any State may, at the time of signature or when depositing its instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession, declare that it reserves the right to grant transit of a person only on some or all of the conditions on which it grants extradition.
6 The transit of the extradited person shall not be carried out through any territory where there is reason to believe that his or her life or freedom may be threatened by reason of his or her race, religion, nationality or political opinion.”
Article 6 – Channels and means of communication
The Convention shall be supplemented by the following provisions:
“Channels and means of communication
1 For the purpose of the Convention, communications may be forwarded by using electronic or any other means affording evidence in writing, under conditions which allow the Parties to ascertain their authenticity.

Države članice Sveta Evrope, podpisnice tega protokola, so se
glede na to, da je cilj Sveta Evrope doseči večjo enotnost med njegovimi članicami;
v želji, da okrepijo svojo in skupno sposobnost odzivanja na kriminaliteto;

1. Izročitev se ne odobri, če sta pregon ali izvršitev kazni za zahtevano osebo zastarala po pravu pogodbenice prosilke.
2. Izročitev se ne zavrne, ker bi pregon ali izvršitev kazni za zahtevano osebo zastarala po pravu zaprošene pogodbenice.
3. Vsaka država lahko ob podpisu ali deponiranju listine o ratifikaciji, sprejetju, odobritvi ali pristopu izjavi, da si pridržuje pravico, da ne uporablja prejšnjega odstavka, če:

b) njena domača zakonodaja izrecno prepoveduje izročitev, kadar bi pregon ali izvršitev kazni za zahtevano osebo po njenem pravu zastaralo.
4. Pri ugotavljanju, ali bi pregon ali izvršitev kazni po pravu pogodbenice, ki je izrazila pridržek na podlagi prejšnjega odstavka, zastarala, ta pogodbenica v skladu s svojim pravom upošteva dejanja ali dogodke, ki so se zgodili v pogodbenici prosilki, če imajo dejanja ali dogodki enake narave učinek pretrganja ali prekinitve zastaranja v zaprošeni pogodbenici."
2. člen – prošnja in dokumentacija
1. 12. člen konvencije se nadomesti s temi določbami:
"Prošnja in dokumentacija

c. prepis ustreznih zakonskih določb, ali če to ni mogoče, navedba ustreznega zakona in čim natančnejši opis zahtevane osebe ter vsi drugi podatki, ki bodo pomagali ugotoviti njeno identiteto, državljanstvo in kje je."

a. pogodbenica, ki jo je predala, soglaša. Prošnja za soglasje se pošlje skupaj z dokumentacijo iz 12. člena in pravno veljavnim zapisnikom izjave, ki jo je dala izročena oseba o tem kaznivem dejanju. Soglasje se lahko da, če je za kaznivo dejanje, za katero se soglasje prosi, predvidena izročitev v skladu z določbami te konvencije. Odločitev se sprejme čim prej in najpozneje v 90 dneh po prejemu prošnje za soglasje.

b. oseba, ki je imela možnost, da zapusti ozemlje pogodbenice, ki ji je bila predana, tega ne stori v 30 dneh, ko je bila dokončno izpuščena, ali se vrne na to ozemlje, potem ko ga je zapustila.
2. Pogodbenica prosilka pa lahko:
a. izvede preiskovalna dejanja, razen ukrepov, s katerim se omeji osebna svoboda obravnavane osebe;

c. sprejme vse potrebne ukrepe, da osebo odstrani s svojega ozemlja.
3. Vsaka država lahko ob podpisu ali deponiranju listine o ratifikaciji, sprejetju, odobritvi ali pristopu ali kadar koli pozneje izjavi, da lahko pogodbenica prosilka, ki je dala enako izjavo, ne glede na prvi odstavek izročeni osebi omeji osebno svobodo, kadar je dana prošnja za soglasje v skladu s točko a prvega odstavka, če:
a. pogodbenica prosilka hkrati s prošnjo za soglasje v skladu s točko a prvega odstavka ali pozneje sporoči datum, ko namerava izvesti tako omejitev, in
b. pristojni organ zaprošene pogodbenice izrecno potrdi prejem tega obvestila.
Zaprošena pogodbenica lahko kadar koli nasprotuje tej omejitvi, kar pogodbenico prosilko zavezuje, da nemudoma odpravi omejitev, vključno z morebitno izpustitvijo izročene osebe.
4. Če se opis kaznivega dejanja med postopkom spremeni, se proti izročeni osebi vodi postopek ali se jo obsodi le, če znaki novega opisa dejanja kažejo, da gre za dejanje, za katero se dovoli izročitev."
4. člen – izročitev tretji državi
Besedilo 15. člena konvencije postane prvi odstavek tega člena, ki se dopolni s tem drugim odstavkom:
"2. Zaprošena pogodbenica sprejme odločitev o soglasju iz prvega odstavka čim prej in najpozneje v 90 dneh po prejemu prošnje za soglasje in morebitnih dokumentov iz drugega odstavka 12. člena. Kadar zaprošena pogodbenica ne more spoštovati roka iz tega odstavka, o tem obvesti pogodbenico prosilko, navede razloge za zamudo in predvideni čas, ki ga potrebuje za sprejetje odločitve."
5. člen – tranzit
21. člen konvencije se nadomesti s temi določbami:
"Tranzit
1. Tranzit čez ozemlje ene od pogodbenic se odobri na podlagi prošnje za tranzit pod pogojem, da pogodbenica, zaprošena za tranzit, ob upoštevanju 3. in 4. člena te konvencije zadevnega kaznivega dejanja ne šteje za politično ali izključno vojaško kaznivo dejanje.
2. Prošnja za tranzit mora vsebovati te podatke:
a. identiteto osebe, ki se izroča, vključno z njenim državljanstvom ali državljanstvi, kadar so na voljo;
b. organ, ki prosi za tranzit;
c. obstoj naloga za prijetje ali druge odločbe z enakim pravnim učinkom ali obstoj izvršljive sodbe in potrditev, da bo oseba izročena;

e. opis okoliščin, v katerih je bilo storjeno kaznivo dejanje, vključno s časom, krajem in obliko udeležbe iskane osebe.
3. Ob nepredvidenem pristanku letala pogodbenica prosilka nemudoma potrdi obstoj enega od dokumentov iz točke a drugega odstavka 12. člena. Tako obvestilo velja kot prošnja za začasni pripor po 16. členu, pogodbenica prosilka pa pogodbenici, na ozemlju katere je letalo pristalo, predloži prošnjo za tranzit.
4. Država, zaprošena za odobritev tranzita, lahko zavrne tranzit državljana v smislu 6. člena.
5. Vsaka država lahko ob podpisu ali deponiranju svoje listine o ratifikaciji, sprejetju, odobritvi ali pristopu izjavi, da si pridržuje pravico do odobritve tranzita osebe le pod nekaterimi ali vsemi pogoji, pod katerimi odobri izročitev.
6. Tranzit izročene osebe ne sme potekati čez ozemlje, za katero se upravičeno domneva, da je življenje ali svoboda te osebe v nevarnosti zaradi njene rase, vere, narodnosti ali političnega prepričanja."
6. člen – poti in sredstva obveščanja
Konvencija se dopolni s temi določbami:
"Poti in sredstva obveščanja
1. Za namene konvencije se lahko obvestila pošiljajo po elektronskih ali drugih sredstvih, ki omogočajo pisni dokaz, tako da imajo pogodbenice možnost preveriti njihovo verodostojnost. Sicer pa pogodbenica na prošnjo in kadar koli pošlje izvirnike ali overjene kopije dokumentov.
2. Uporaba Mednarodne organizacije kriminalistične policije (Interpola) ali diplomatskih poti ni izključena.
3. Vsaka država lahko ob podpisu ali deponiranju listine o ratifikaciji, sprejetju, odobritvi ali pristopu izjavi, da si za namene 12. člena in točke a prvega odstavka 14. člena konvencije pridržuje pravico zahtevati izvirnik ali overjeno kopijo prošnje in dokumentov."
7. člen – razmerje do konvencije in drugih mednarodnih aktov
1. Besede in izrazi iz tega protokola se razlagajo v pomenu konvencije. Za pogodbenice tega protokola se določbe konvencije uporabljajo smiselno, če so združljive z določbami tega protokola.

Konvencija se dopolni s temi določbami:
"Mirno reševanje
O uporabi konvencije in njenih dodatnih protokolov je treba obveščati Evropski odbor za vprašanja kriminalitete Sveta Evrope; odbor stori vse potrebno za lažje mirno reševanje vseh težav, ki utegnejo nastati pri njegovi razlagi in uporabi."
