Practice Relating to Rule 161. International Cooperation in Criminal Proceedings
Section C. Extradition of own nationals
Uzbekistan’s Criminal Procedure Code Amendment Act (2010) states: “The extradition of a person from the territory of the Republic of Uzbekistan to a foreign State is not allowed if … the person in respect of whom the request is made is a citizen of the Republic of Uzbekistan”.
In 2011, in its fourth periodic report to the Committee against Torture, Uzbekistan stated:
Pursuant to article 603 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, extradition of a person situated in Uzbekistan to a foreign State is not permitted:
(a) Where the person sought is a national of Uzbekistan.
In the report, Uzbekistan also stated: “No national of Uzbekistan may be extradited for an offence committed in a foreign State except where international treaties or agreements provide otherwise.”
