Canadian Treaty Series
PROTOCOL BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND ROUMANIA, EXPLANATORY OF #21 OF ARTICLE II OF THE TREATY OF EXTRADITION OF MARCH 21 (9), 1893 (KIDNAPPING AND FALSE IMPRISONMENT).
In order to avoid the possibility of any misunderstanding
arising from the present text of #21 of Article II of the Treaty of
concluded between Great Britain and Roumania on the
21st (9th) of March, 1893, the undersigned
Plenipotentiaries, duly authorized thereto by their respective
Governments, have agreed as follows:
The fact of having kidnapped or falsely imprisoned one or more persons will not admit of a requisition for extradition being made unless the act shall have been committed by private individuals. No such requisition can be made as against public functionaries who may have been guilty of the act in question while in the performance of their duties.
The present Protocol shall be considered as approved and sanctioned by the respective Governments without any special ratification, by the sole fact of the exchange of the ratification of the Treaty to which it refers.
DONE in duplicate at Bucharest, the 13th (1st) day of March, in the year of Our Lord 1894.
