Abstract: This document provides the provisions of the Fourth Additional Protocol to the European Convention on Extradition which concerns the issues of lapse of time, requests and supporting documents, rule of specialty, transit, re-extradition to a third State and channels and means of communication. Included are the agreements between the member States of the Council of Europe, who were signatory to this protocol and provisions of the European Convention on Extradition (ETS No. 24) opened for signature in Paris on 13 December 1957, as well as the three additional protocols thereto (ETS Nos. 86 and 98, CETS No. 209), done at Strasbourg on 15 October 1975, on 17 March 1978 and on 10 November 2010, respectively. The aim of the Council of Europe is to achieve greater unity between its members and to strengthen their individual and collective ability to respond to crime. The Fourth Additional Protocol to the European Convention on Extradition amends and supplements a number of provisions of the Convention in order to adapt it to modern needs. The Protocol modernizes a number of provisions of the Convention and supplements it in certain respects, taking into account the evolution of international co-operation in criminal matters since the entry into force of the Convention and the additional protocols.
