Practice Relating to Rule 161. International Cooperation in Criminal Proceedings
In 2007, in its initial report to the Committee against Torture, Chad stated:
186. There are several instruments governing extradition in Chad, namely the Code of Criminal Procedure, the General Agreement of 12 September 1961 on Cooperation in Judicial Matters and the Franco-Chadian agreement (No. 138/CSM of 6 March 1976) on mutual legal assistance.
187. These instruments govern the conditions and effects of extradition and the procedures to be followed and, more generally speaking, cases in which extradition is not permitted.
188. Under article 447 of the Criminal Code, no extradition is permitted:
When the crime or offence has been committed on Chadian territory;
When the crime or offence, although not committed on Chadian territory, has been prosecuted and formed the subject of a final judgment in Chad;
… When under the laws of the requesting or the requested State legal action has become statute-barred before the request for extradition is made;
If there has been an amnesty in the requesting or the requested State.
197. Chad is now a party to the  Convention against Torture. It cannot undertake an extradition without taking into account all relevant considerations, including, where present, the existence in the requesting State of a pattern of systematic, grave, flagrant or mass violations of human rights. This is a moral duty and a necessary safety precaution.
Regarding extradition for the crime of torture, Chad stated:
297. The criminal legislation of Chad does not envisage or punish torture as a criminal act. Consequently the discovery within the country of a suspected perpetrator of an act of torture committed outside the country cannot give rise either to extradition or to prosecution by the Chad authorities, even where there is a cooperation or mutual judicial assistance agreement between Chad and the requesting State.
298. Under article 445 of the Code of Criminal Procedure the Government of Chad may hand over to foreign governments at their request any person not of Chadian nationality in the territory of the Republic who is the subject of prosecution introduced in the name of the requesting State or of a sentence handed down by the courts of that State. However, extradition is granted only if the offence which has given rise to the request was committed outside the country by a person who is a non-national of that State and when the offence is one which, under Chadian law, may be prosecuted in Chad even if the offence was committed outside the country.
299. The last paragraph of article 445 goes still further. It stipulates that: “In no case shall extradition be granted if the act is not punishable under Chadian law with a penalty of criminal or délit rank.” Since torture is neither a crime nor a délit under Chadian law, not only can no request for extradition be met but in addition it will no longer be possible to undertake proceedings of any kind. Thus the introduction of the provisions of the  Convention against Torture into the domestic legal order is necessary for purposes of trial or extradition of perpetrators of acts of torture.
300. However, if a specific act of torture in respect of which extradition is requested is deemed to be an act giving rise to a penalty of criminal or délit rank under the provisions of domestic instruments (such as the administration of a harmful substance during interrogation by a public official), extradition will be granted, since such acts are punishable under article 245 of the Chadian Criminal Code.
301. The request for extradition would then only have to meet the conditions laid down in the Criminal Code and the requirements of reciprocity.
