Nothing in this section shall affect the right (if any) of the proprietor of a trade mark registered before the passing of this Act, and containing any such emblem or words, to continue to use such trade mark for a period of four years from the passing of this Act, and, if the period of the registration or of the renewal of registration of any such trade mark expires during those four years, the regis- tration thereof may be renewed until the expiration of those four years, but without payment of any fee.

  If the person claimed on the part of the Government of His Majesty the King of the Hellenes, or of His Britannic Majesty's Government, should be awaiting trial or undergoing sentence for any other crime or offence in the territory of Greece or in the United Kingdom, respectively, his extradition shall be deferred until after he has been discharged, whether by acquittal or on expiration of sentence.

200

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 19, 1912.

ARTICLE 5.

Extradition shall not be granted if exemption from prosecution or punishment has been acquired by lapse of time, according to the laws of the State applied to."

      Neither shall it be granted in the case of persons convicted by default, or otherwise, unless the sentence inflicted be at least one year's imprisonment.

ARTICLE 6.

The person claimed shall not be surrendered if the crime in respect of which extradi- tion is applied for be deemed by the party to whom application is made to be a political offence, or connected with such an offence, or if the person claimed proves that the application for extradition has in fact been made with a view to try or to punish him for an offence of this character.

ARTICLE 7.

A person whose surrender has been granted shall in no case be detained or tried in the State to which the surrender has been made for any other crime, or on account of

                                          any other matters than those for which the extraditi ball have taken place.

This stipulation does not apply to crimes committed after the extradition.

The person who has been claimed, and whose extradition shall have been granted, shall not be tried or punished for any political offence committed prior to his extradition, nor for any matter connected with such an offence, nor for any crimes or offences not provided for in the present Treaty.

ARTICLE 8.

The requisition shall be made through the Diplomatic Agents of the High Contracting Parties respectively.

1

       The requisition for the extradition of an accused person must be accompanied by a warrant of arrest issued by the competent judicial authority setting forth clearly the nature of the crime or offence with which the person claimed is charged. The said warrant shall also be accompanied by such evidence as, according to the laws of the place where the accused is found, would justify his arrest if the crime had been committed there.

      If the requisition relates to a person already convicted, it must be accompanied by a copy of the judgment passed on the convicted person by the competent Court of the State that makes the requisition for extradition.

       A sentence passed in contumaciam is not to be deemed a conviètion, but a person so sentenced may be dealt with as an accused person.

       In the event of any doubt arising as to whether the crime or offence, in respect of which the prosecution has been instituted, comes within the stipulations of the present Treaty, the Government applied to shall be at liberty to require all such further information as it may consider necessary or of assistance in order to form an opinion, after which it shall decide what action shall be taken on the demand for extradition.

The requisitioning Government, in furnishing such further information to the Govern- ment applied to, shall, at the same time, place at the disposal of the latter all such documents as may be necessary or useful in enabling it to form an opinion.

ARTICLE 9.

      In cases of urgency provisional arrest may be effected upon notice being given, by post or telegraph, through the diplomatic channel that one of the documents enumerated in Article 8 has been issued, provided, however, that such notice shall always be given to the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the State applied to.

Provisional arrest shall be effected in the manner and in accordance with the rules laid down by the laws of the State applied to. It shall not be maintained if, within a period of one month from the date on which it has been effected, the State applied to has not been furnished with one of the documents specified in Article 8 of the present Treaty.

ARTICLE 10.

      All papers and documents issued by the authorities of the Contracting States which may be produced in virtue of Articles 8 and 13 of the present Treaty must be accompanied by an authenticated translation in the French language.

*

C

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 19, 1912.

ARTICLE 11.

201

The extradition shall take place only if the evidence be found sufficient, according to the laws of the State applied to, either to justify the committal of the prisoner for trial, in case the crime had been committed in the territory of the same State, or if extradition is claimed in respect of an offence of which the fugitive has been already convicted, to prove that the prisoner is the person convicted, and that the crime of which he has been convicted is one in respect of which extradition could, at the time of such conviction, have been granted by the State applied to.

ARTICLE 12.

   Extradition shall be granted in accordance with the rules laid down by the law of the State applied to.

ARTICLE 13.

Warrants, depositions, and affirmations, issued or taken in the dominions of one of the High Contracting Parties, and copies of such documents as well as certificates or judicial. documents stating the fact of a conviction shall be admitted as valid evidence in the pro- ceedings taken in the dominions of the other party, if they bear the signature or are accom- panied by the certificate of a Judge, Magistrate, or officer of the State in which they have been issued or taken, provided that such warrants, depositions, affirmations, copies, certificates, or judicial documents are authenticated, either by the oath of some witness, or by being sealed with the seal of the Minister of Justice, or some other Minister of State.

ARTICLE 14.

If the accused or sentenced person be not a subject of one of the Contracting Parties, the Government to whom application for extradition is made shall be at liberty to take such action in respect of the application, as it may think fit, and to surrender the person claimed to be tried in the State in which the crime or offence has been committed.

Nevertheless, the Government of His Majesty the King of the Hellenes reserves to itself the option of surrendering the person claimed to the State to which he belongs, instead of surrendering him to the State in which the crime or offence has been committed.

ARTICLE 15.

If a fugitive criminal who has been arrested has not been surrendered and conveyed away within three months after his arrest, or within three months after the decision of the Court upon the return to a writ of habeas corpus in the United Kingdom, he shall be set at liberty.

ARTICLE 16.

   When extradition is granted all articles connected with the crime or offence, or which may serve as proofs of the crime, which are found in the possession of the person claimed at the time of his arrest, or which may be afterwards discovered, shall, if the competent author- ity of the State applied to so direct, be seized and restored to the requisitioning State.

Such restoration shall be carried out, even if extradition be not carried out owing to the escape or death of the person claimed.

   The rights, however, which third persons, not involved in the prosecution, may have acquired over the said articles are reserved, and the latter shall, should the case arise, be restored to them, free of charge, at the termination of the proceedings.

ARTICLE 17.

   All expenses arising out of an application for extradition, also the costs of the arrests, maintenance, and transport of the person whose extradition shall have been granted, as well as of the dispatch and forwarding of the articles which, by the provisions of Article 16, are to be returned or restored, shall be borne by the requisitioning State and by the State applied to within the limits of their respective territories.

   The cost of transport or other expenses outside the territory of the State applied to shall be borne by the demanding State.

ARTICLE 18.

   The stipulations of the present Treaty shall be applicable to the Colonies and foreign possessions of His Britannic Majesty.
