|Entry into Force||- Ratification by Parties to treaty ETS 90|
The main features of the Amending Protocol are the following:
While the Convention as such does not deal directly with general issues of extradition, the classical discrimination clause has been expanded to include a clause authorising the refusal to extradite to a country where there is a risk of applying a death sentence, or a risk of being subject to torture or life imprisonment without parole.
Finally, the Protocol provides for a follow-up mechanism ("COSTER") in charge of implementing the new procedure in relation to reservations as well as other tasks related to the follow-up of the Convention. This mechanism will operate in addition to the classic and more general competence of the European Committee on Crime Problems (CDPC) in relation to Conventions in the criminal field.
