Notification of circumstances that could materially affect terms or extent of imprisonment


Criminal Procedure Code No. 301/2005 Coll. - Part Five: Legal Relations with Abroad


Division One
Recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions

Section 517
Conversion of sanction

(1) A foreign decision shall be recognised by the Slovak court by converting the sanction imposed therein into a sanction which the court would have imposed if it had proceeded on the committed criminal offence itself. The Slovak court must not, however, impose a more severe sanction than the one imposed in the foreign decision, nor may convert it into a different kind of sanction.

(2) If the length and type of the prison sentence imposed in the recognised foreign decision are compatible with the law of the Slovak Republic, the court in its decision on recognition shall decide that the enforcement of the sentence imposed in the foreign decision shall be continued without the conversion referred to in paragraph 1. This procedure shall, however, not be admissible if the court recognised the foreign decision only in respect of some of the several offences for which the foreign decision was imposed.

(3) In its decision on the recognition of a foreign property decision, the Slovak court shall also decide who shall receive the title to the confiscated property, its part or to a thing. If it does not rule otherwise, the title to the property, its part or to a thing shall fall to the Slovak Republic.

Rome Statute

Article 103 Role of States in enforcement of sentences of imprisonment


(a) The State of enforcement shall notify the Court of any circumstances, including the exercise of any conditions agreed under paragraph 1, which could materially affect the terms or extent of the imprisonment. The Court shall be given at least 45 days' notice of any such known or foreseeable circumstances. During this period, the State of enforcement shall take no action that might prejudice its obligations under article 110.
