    In accordance with Article 17, paragraph 3, of the Convention, Bolivia requires that requests for transfer and supporting documents be accompanied by a translation into Spanish.

    The Embassy of the Republic of Bolivia regrets the belated communication of the declarations regarding the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons, which is the result of an unfortunate administrative oversight. The Embassy of the Republic of Bolivia in France recognises that the provisions of the Convention concerning the formulation of reservations and declarations should be respected by Contracting States. However, it needs to be pointed out that the declarations were made by the Bolivian Parliament during the procedures of domestic approval of the Convention. The Parliament, the only institution authorised by the Bolivian Constitution, has the right to approve international agreements of this nature. Consequently, in this respect, the declarations form an inseparable part of the Parliamentary decision.

    In accordance with Article 5, paragraph 3, of the Convention, Bolivia will use the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of Cult for the procedure of the requests for transfer.

    Declarations

    Re the Convention as a whole:

    In conformity with the preamble of the Convention, the Federal Republic of Germany understands that the application of the Convention should further not only the social rehabilitation of sentenced persons, but also the ends ofjustice. Accordingly, it will take the decision on the transfer of sentenced persons in each individual case on the basis of all punitive purposes underlying its criminal law.

    Re Article 2.2, second sentence:

    The Federal Republic of Germany interprets the Convention as creating rights and obligations between the Parties only, no claims or subjective rights accruing to sentenced persons and no such claims or rights having to be created.

    Re Article 3.1:

    The Federal Republic of Germany will take charge of enforcing sentences in accordance with the Convention only on condition that

    a) the sentence was imposed in a trial conforming to the European Convention of 4 November 1950 for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and its supplementary protocols where these are in force for the Federal Republic of Germany,

    b) no judgment or decision having similar legal effects has been passed against the person prosecuted for the same offence in the Federal Republic of Germany,

    c) enforcement of the sentence is not barred under the law applicable in the Federal Republic of Germany due to lapse of time or would not be so barred after analogous conversion of the facts.

    The Federal Republic of Germany will transfer enforcement of judgments in accordance with the Convention to other member States only if it is guaranteed that

    a) the sentenced person is prosecuted, sentenced, detained for the enforcement of a penalty or detention order or subjected to any other restriction of his personal liberty in respect of an offence other than that underlying the transfer and committed before the surrender only in the following cases:

    aa) if the Federal Republic of Germany consents or

    bb) if the transferred person has not left the territory of the administering State within 45 days of his final discharge despite having had the opportunity to do so or if, having left such territory, has returned there,

    and

    b) the administering State will not prosecute again or enforce a new sentence in respect of the offence underlying the judgment.

    Re Artcle 3.3:

    The Federal Republic of Germany will take charge of enforcing sentences only on condition that a German court declares the judgment passed in the sentencing State to be enforceable. In considering whether the conditions for accepting enforcement are fulfilled, the court will proceed from the facts and legal conclusions set forth in the judgment.

    Re Article 3.4:

    The term "national" covers all Germans in the sense of Article 116 (1) of the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany.

    Re Article 4:

    The Federal Republic of Germany dispenses with the information envisaged in Article 4.2 to 4.5, if, in the opinion of the competent German authorities, a request for transfer of enforcement is excluded a priori. It understands that an obligation to inform sentenced persons exists only where it is compatible with the relevant provisions of national law and that, in particular, the sentenced person has no right to be informed abouofficial internal procedures.

    Re Article 5.3:

    Requests can also be made by or addressed to the ministries of justice of the L?nder (Land administrations of justice) of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Therefore, if the sentenced person is found in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany before the expiry of half of the time remaining to be served under the sentence imposed or converted in the administering State, they will assume that he has escaped and detain him for further questioning, unless the administering State has, in addition to that envisaged in Article 15, conveyed the information that the sentenced person has been conditionally released or that the enforcement of the sentence has been interrupted on other grounds.

    Re Article 12:

    In view of the federal structure of the Federal Republic of Germany and the fact that the L?nder have competence in respect of decisions regarding pardons, the Federal Republic of Germany reserves the right to transfer the enforcement of judgments to another member State in accordance with the Convention only on condition that, on the basis of a general or case-to-case declaration by the administering State, pardon will be granted in the administering State only in agreement with the German pardoning authority.

    Communication on 3.9.1997

    Under Article 3, paragraph 1(f), of the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons, both the sentencing and the administering States must agree to the transfer of a sentenced person. In the case of the United States of America, where a sentenced person has been convicted by a state of the United States of crimes under the laws of that state and is in the custody of authorities of that state, the Government of the United States will not agree to a transfer unless the competent state authorities first give their consent.

    In any such case, the state government must have state legislation authorizing consent to such transfers and be prepared to exercise that authority in the specific case.

    For the benefit of authorities of member States and other Parties to the Convention, a current list is enclosed of those states of the United States that have legal authority to transfer sentenced persons in their custody.
    The United States Government is renewing its efforts to encourage its states to obtain necessary statutory authorization for participation in transfers under the Convention.

    As just noted, however, even in those states that have such authority, specific consent of the appropriate state authorities would be required for transfer of any particular individual who was convicted of violating that state?s laws.
    Consent may not be presumed from the existence of statutory authority; indeed, there are some states which authorize few, or no, transfers notwithstanding the statutory authority to consent. While the Government of the United States strongly encourages state participation in transfers under the Convention, the United States Government cannot compel a state to consent to the transfer of an individual who was convicted of violating that state?s laws.

    United States Federal authorities are prepared to assist member States and other Parties to the Convention in contacting appropriate state authorities, and recommend that this be done informally prior to submission of a formal request for transfer. In addition, the member State or Party to the Convention may contact the state authorities directly to try to persuade them of the propriety of the transfer of a particular individual.

    The United States Central Authority is the International Prisoner Transfer Unit, Office of Enforcement Operations, Criminal Division, Department of Justice, Washington, D.C. 20530.

    List of States:

    Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Northern Marianna Islands (U.S. Territory), Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont (Canada only), Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
