In order to fully ensure repressive state authority and applicability of its laws all over its territory the question concerning the territory on which they can be implemented in contemporary states is of primary significance. This is a very important legal and constitutional question, but also a political one. It entails an international dimension especially in cases when before or after the trial intending to avoid doing of justice a perpetrator of an criminal act deserts the territory of the state where the act has been committed and flees abroad. In such a case, extradition of handing over such persons is applied on the part of foreign states to the states on whose territories they have committed the criminal acts. In order to ensure efficiency and uniformity of acting in this field the European Convention on Extradition with Additional Protocols have been adopted. Our state has also adopted its implementing provisions in the national criminal law and that is the topic of this article
