PART THREE Individual forms of International Judicial Cooperation
Chapter II Extradition of Persons
Sub-chapter 2 Extradition to Foreign States
Section 102 Concurrence of Requests for Extradition from Several States
(1) In case requests of several foreign states for extradition of the same person are received, conditions of admissibility of extradition will be assessed in relation to each of these requests separately. In such a case the competence for proceedings on assessment of admissibility of extradition on the basis of an extradition request served later will pertain to the court competent for proceedings on admissibility of extradition on the basis of a request received earlier. After the decision on admissibility of extradition comes to full force and effect, the Minister of Justice will decide, to which state this person will be extradited. At the same time he may grant a consent to his extradition to another state that requested his extradition.
(2) When deciding to which foreign state will the person be extradited, the Minister of Justice will consider especially the order, in which the requests were received, circumstances of commission of the criminal offences, for which the extradition is requested, including their seriousness, the type and extent of the imposed sentences and the probability of each state in question to achieve subsequent extradition of the person from the state, to which the person would be extradited from the Czech Republic, as well as the fact, whether the extradition is requested for the purpose of criminal proceedings or execution of an unsuspended sentence of imprisonment or a protective measure associated with incarceration.
(3) Provision of Section 96 will not apply in case of concurrence of requests for extradition; if the person concerned by the extradition already gave his consent with his extradition, such consent will not be taken into account.
PART FOUR Cooperation with International Criminal Courts and Tribunals
Chapter I General Provisions
Section 151 Concurrence of Requests
In case requests or orders of several international courts or of an international court an a foreign state are served to the authorities of the Czech Republic and they concern the same person or the same matter and providing cooperation on the basis of all such requests or orders is not possible, conditions and possibilities of providing cooperation will be assessed in relation to each request and order individually. Therein will be considered especially the nature of the obligation to cooperation with the international court, the order, in which these requests and orders were served to the authorities of the Czech Republic, circumstances of commission of the criminal offenses concerned by these requests and orders, including their seriousness, furthermore the type and extent of sentences that may be or have been imposed and the probability, with which the international courts and states, requests and orders of which were served to the authorities of the Czech Republic, may achieve provision of cooperation in mutual relations.
Section 152 Not Granting and Suspension of Execution of Request or Order

(2) The judicial authority may postpone execution of a request or order of an international court only after a previous consultation with the international court and only for a fixed time period; its duration will the judicial authority notify to the international court along with a notification of suspension of execution of the request or order. If a request or order of an international court referred to in Section 145 (1) (a) is concerned, it may do so only after a consultation with this international court.
1. A State Party which receives a request from the Court for the surrender of a person under article 89 shall, if it also receives a request from any other State for the extradition of the same person for the same conduct which forms the basis of the crime for which the Court seeks the person's surrender, notify the Court and the requesting State of that fact.
(a) The Court has, pursuant to article 18 or 19, made a determination that the case in respect of which surrender is sought is admissible and that determination takes into account the investigation or prosecution conducted by the requesting State in respect of its request for extradition; or

The Court's determination shall be made on an expedited basis.
