D. Custody pending surrender, surrender and transit
Provisional custody pending surrender
(2) Provisional custody pending surrender may not be ordered or continued when the purposes of custody can be achieved through concurrent imprisonment, pre-trial custody or custody pending extradition. In such a case the Judge of the princely court shall order the amendments to the custodial order which, for the purposes of provisional custody pending surrender, are essential to the International Criminal Court or International Tribunal. In other respects, provisional custody pending surrender shall be subject to the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure governing pre-trial custody.
(3) Provisional custody pending surrender may be suspended if the request for surrender and the supporting material are not transmitted within 60 days of the arrest. Release does not preclude renewed arrest and surrender should the request for surrender and the supporting material be transmitted at a later time.
(4) The princely court shall promptly transmit to the Ministry of Justice copies of the orders for the imposition, extension or suspension of provisional custody pending surrender for the purpose of informing the International Criminal Court or International Tribunal through the International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL).
1. In urgent cases, the Court may request the provisional arrest of the person sought, pending presentation of the request for surrender and the documents supporting the request as specified in article 91.
