Central African Republic
Practice Relating to Rule 161. International Cooperation in Criminal Proceedings
The Central African Republic’s Penal Procedure Code (2010) states:
The Central African Government can, upon the request of foreign Governments, hand over non-nationals found on the territory of the [Central African] Republic if they are subjected to proceedings in the requesting State or to a sentence pronounced by the courts [of this State].
Nevertheless, extradition is only granted if the offence, for which the request has been made, was committed:
- on the territory of the requesting State by a national of that State or by a foreigner;
- outside its territory by a national of the State;
- outside the territory of the State by a foreigner, when Central African law authorizes the prosecution of the offence, even when it was committed by a foreigner outside of the national territory.
