Abstract EN

International judicial cooperation in criminal matters becomes more and more important for each country in the world. Somalia is no exception. In increasing number of cases, its authorities would need to turn to foreign judicial authorities to obtain necessary evidence or/and extradition of fugitives for trial or execution of a punishment imposed on them by Somali court. Nowadays, more and more criminal judges, prosecutors and investigating police officers must deal, in their daily work, with different modalities of international judicial cooperation in criminal matters. However, they face significant difficulties. The existing Somali legal framework for this cooperation is badly in need of improvement. This article attempts to make some proposals for improvement of the Criminal Procedure Code and, particularly, the provisions of its Book V which governs the international judicial cooperation.
