Summary/Abstract: It is more correct to name transferees prisoners or inmates rather than sentenced persons as by the time of surrender they have already commenced serving their imprisonment punishment. It is the act of foreign judgment recognition in the execution country that relinquishes the jurisdiction of the sentencing country’s authorities over the execution of the punishment. As long as the act of recognition has not become final it is their duty to enforce the criminal judgment as no ground for suspension of the punishment execution exists so far.
