1. A person who has been extradited under this Treaty shall not be detained, prosecuted or tried, for any offence committed before extradition other than that for which extradition has been granted, nor extradited to a third State for any offence, except in any of the following circumstances:
(a) when that person has left the territory of the Requesting Party after extradition and has voluntarily returned to it;
(b) when that person has not left the territory of the Requesting Party within forty-five (45) days after being free to do so; or
(c) when the Requested Party consents. A request for consent shall be submitted, accompanied by the documents mentioned in Article and a record of any statement made by the extradited person in respect of the offence concerned. Consent may be given when the offence for which it is requested is extraditable in accordance with the provisions of this Treaty.

2. Paragraph I of this Article shall not apply to offences committed after the extradition.

3. When the description of the offence charged is altered in the course of proceedings, the extradited person shall only be proceeded against or sentenced in so far as the offence under its new description is shown by its constituent elements to be an offence which would allow extradition.

Article 17

4. Where a person is being held in custody pursuant to paragraph 3 of this Article, the Contracting Party in whose territory the person is being held may direct that the person be released if transportation is not continued within a reasonable time.

5. Authorization for transit shall not be required when air transport is to be used and no landing is scheduled in the territory of the Party of transit. If an unscheduled landing occurs in the territory of that Party it may require the other Party to furnish a request for transit as provided in paragraph 1 of this Article. The Party of transit shall detain the person to be transported until the transportation is continued provided that the request is received within ninety- six (96) hours of the unscheduled landing.

Article 18
