9. Obligation to consult, and rejection of requests from the International Criminal Court
1. Matters arising shall be resolved through consultations with the International Criminal Court, in particular where the execution of a request from the International Criminal Court would:
(4) conflict with international obligations whereby the consent of a sending State is required to surrender a person of that State to the Court (article 98(2) of the Statute).
2. The Court may not proceed with a request for surrender which would require the requested State to act inconsistently with its obligations under international agreements pursuant to which the consent of a sending State is required to surrender a person of that State to the Court, unless the Court can first obtain the cooperation of the sending State for the giving of consent for the surrender.
