Summary

The Convention aims to allow offenders to leave the territory of a Party where a sentence was pronounced, or where the enforcement of a sentence has been conditionally suspended, to establish their ordinary residence in another Party under the supervision of its authorities.

The basic principles of the Convention require that Parties agree to assist each other in the social rehabilitation of offenders for facilitating their good conduct and the readaptation to social life of persons convicted abroad.

The Convention specifies conditions as regard the enforcement by the requested State of a sentence of which the enforcement has been conditionally suspended in another Party.
