PROCEDURAL PROVISIONS AND JUDICIAL COOPERATION
II. JUDICIAL COOPERATION
Art. 26 Consultations with the ICC
1. The Secretary of State for Justice, Transparency and Human Rights, in cooperation with
the Foreign Secretary, shall consult with the ICC in all circumstances specified by the ICC Statute or warranted by the particular circumstances of the case such as:
(c) When the request for surrender of a person or for the provision of judicial assistance is inconsistent with the obligations of the Hellenic Republic with respect to the State or diplomatic immunity of a person or property of a third State, according to the provisions of art. 98 par. 2 of the ICC Statute.
2. Immunities or special procedural rules which may attach to the official capacity of a person, whether under national or international law, shall not bar the Court from exercising its jurisdiction over such a person.
1. The Court may not proceed with a request for surrender or assistance which would require the requested State to act inconsistently with its obligations under international law with respect to the State or diplomatic immunity of a person or property of a third State, unless the Court can first obtain the cooperation of that third State for the waiver of the immunity.
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.
From the date on which the Court establishes a social security scheme, the persons referred to in articles 15, 16 and 17 shall, with respect to services rendered for the Court, be exempt from all compulsory contributions to national social security schemes.
