CAMBODIA – CRIMINAL PROCEDURE CODE
BOOK 9 SEPARATE PROCEDURES
CHAPTER 2- EXTRADITION
SECTION 1 - EXTRADITION REQUESTED BY A FOREIGN STATE
SUB-SECTION 3 – EXTRADITION PROCEDURES
Article 581. Request for Pre-trial Arrest
The requesting state may request for the pre-trial arrest of the wanted person.
In case of emergency, the request for pre-trial arrest may be made prior to the extradition request provided in Article 579 (Certification of Extradition Request) of this Code.
The pre-trial arrest, which aims to prevent the wanted person from escaping, does not require the compliance of any other separate proceeding.
The person who is the subject of pre-trial arrest procedures shall be released automatically if the Royal Government of Cambodia does not receive the documents specified in Article 579 (Certification of Extradition Request) within 2 (two) months from the date of arrest.
3. A person who is provisionally arrested may be released from custody if the requested State has not received the request for surrender and the documents supporting the request as specified in article 91 within the time limits specified in the Rules of Procedure and Evidence. However, the person may consent to surrender before the expiration of this period if permitted by the law of the requested State. In such a case, the requested State shall proceed to surrender the person to the Court as soon as possible.
