1. MEASURE IMPLEMENTATION

Словакия

Is this measure possible in your Member State under International Judicial Cooperation?

A decision of a court of a foreign State in a criminal matter (hereinafter referred to as a „foreign decision“) has legal effects on the territory of the Slovak Republic only if there is a provision in an international treaty or in a law to that effect. The foreign decision imposing a sentence may be enforced on the territory of the Slovak republic only if it was recognised by the Slovak court. A foreign decision may be recognised in a sentence by which the confiscation of property or of its part or the forfeiture or confiscation of a thing were imposed if they are on the territory of the Slovak Republic (hereinafter referred to as “a foreign property decision”). In relation to a legal entity a foreign decision may be enforced on the territory of the Slovak Republic only if a financial saction or confiscation of a property was imposed to it. The enforcement of such foreign decision towards the legal entity is realised without the recognition of the decision by the Slovak court, if it is established by a separate law or an international treaty.
