European Arrest Warrant Act 2003

Conditional surrender.

19.—(1) Where a person to whom an order under section 15 or 16 applies—

(a) has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment for an offence of which he or she was convicted in the State, and

(b) is, at the time of the making of the order, required to serve all or part of that term of imprisonment,

the High Court may, subject to such conditions as it shall specify, direct that the person be surrendered to the issuing state for the purpose of his or her being tried for the offence to which the European arrest warrant concerned relates.

(2) Where a person is surrendered to the issuing state under this section, then any term of imprisonment or part of a term of imprisonment that the person is required to serve in the State shall be reduced by an amount equal to any period of time spent by that person in custody or detention in the issuing state consequent upon his or her being so surrendered, or pending trial.
