TITLE I CO-OPERATION WITH THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT
CHAPTER I JUDICIAL CO-OPERATION
SECTION 2: ARRESTS AND TRANSFERS
(Inserted by Law no. 2002-268 of 26 February 2002 art. 1 Official Journal of 27 February 2002)
The provisions of articles 627-4 to 627-10 are also applicable if the wanted person has been prosecuted or convicted in France on charges other than the ones specified in the International Criminal Court’s application. However, in these circumstances the detainee cannot benefit from being released in accordance with articles 627-6, 627-9 and the second paragraph of article 627-10.
The transfer of proceedings before the International Criminal Court suspends the prescription of the prosecution and the sentence in relation to the person concerned.
4. If the person sought is being proceeded against or is serving a sentence in the requested State for a crime different from that for which surrender to the Court is sought, the requested State, after making its decision to grant the request, shall consult with the Court.
