Extradition is a formal process conducted through treaties and other legislation that regulates the conditions and the procedure in which one person from one state can be sent to another state to be tried or to serve a sentence. It aims to sentence the perpetrator, even if he/she have moved from one state to another state. Main documents in which we were focused while preparing this paper are: The European Convention on Extradition (and its additional protocols) from 1957 with its Protocols and the Law on International Cooperation in Criminal Matters of Macedonia (Official Gazette no.124 from 20.09.2010). The criminal legislation of contemporary states and the international law looks for fulfillment of these principles in extradition matters: the principle of reciprocity, the principle of double incrimination, the non bis in idem principle and the principle of specialty. These principles help in protection state`s sovereignty, independence, equality and their prestige in international relations. They also help in protection of human rights and freedoms of the person to be extradited. There are usually two parties (states) included in this process: requesting Party and requested Party.
