Noorwegen, 30 juni 2006

Pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 3, of the Convention, the Government of the Kingdom of Norway reserves the right not to apply Article 6, paragraph 1.a.i, of the Convention.

Pursuant to Article 14, paragraph 3, of the Convention, the Government of the Kingdom of Norway, reserves the right not to apply the measures referred to in Article 20 - Real-time collection of traffic data, in cases of less serious offences.

Clarification of what is meant by ‘‘less serious offences’’

Pursuant to Article 14, paragraph 3, the Parties may reserve the right to apply the measures set out in Article 20 only to offences or categories of offences specified in the reservation. It is indicated in the Norwegian reservation, that Norway does not wish to allow the collection of traffic data in real time in connection with minor offences.

Section 216b of the Norwegian Criminal Procedure Act provides for the collection of traffic data in cases where there is just cause for suspecting a person of having committed an offence, or of having attempted to commit an offence, that is punishable by imprisonment for a term of five years or more, or of having contravened specific penal provisions.

The use of various types of communication control and other privacy-invasive coercive measures is primarily restricted to cases involving serious offences, where serious offences are defined as carrying a penalty of five or more years’ imprisonment.

Clarification of the relationship between the reservation and the application of Articles 20 and 21 in Norwegian law

The right to apply the measures referred to in Article 20 only to offences specified in the reservation is conditional on the range of offences to which Article 20 is applied not being more restricted than the range of offences to which the measures referred to in Article 21 apply. The condition set out in Article 14 must be interpreted to mean that the range of offences for which traffic data may be collected in real time must not be more restricted than the range of offences for which interception of content data is permitted.

Article 21 (Interception of content data) is governed in Norwegian law by section 216a of the Criminal Procedure Act, and Article 20 by section 216b of the Criminal Procedure Act. Section 216a has a prescribed penalty limit of ten or more years’ imprisonment, while section 216b has a prescribed penalty limit of five years’ imprisonment. This means that section 216a applies to a narrower range of offences than section 216b, and the condition of Article 14 is thus fulfilled. Norway is therefore entitled to enter a reservation in accordance with Article 14.

Pursuant to Article 29, paragraph 4, of the Convention, the Government of the Kingdom of Norway reserves the right to refuse the request for preservation under this article in cases where it has reasons to believe that at the time of disclosure the condition of dual criminality cannot be fulfilled.

In accordance with Article 24 of the Convention, the Norwegian authority responsible for making or receiving requests for extradition is The Royal Ministry of Justice and the Police, P.O. Box 8005, N-0030 OSLO.

In accordance with Article 27 of the Convention, the Norwegian authority designated is the National Criminal Investigation Service (KRIPOS). Direct telephone number for 24/7 (The High Tech Crime Division) contact is: + 47 23 20 88 88.

Oekraïne, 10 maart 2006

Ukraine reserves the right not to apply to the full extent subparagraphs 1.d and 1.e of Article 9 of the Convention.

In accordance with Article 27, subparagraph 2.c, of the Convention, Ukraine declares that the authorities responsible for sending requests for mutual assistance, answering them, their execution or their transfer to the empowered authorities shall be the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine (concerning courts’ commission) and the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine (concerning commissions of bodies of prejudicial inquiry).

Accordingly, the United States will implement paragraphs (1) (b), (c) and (d) to the extent provided for under its federal law.

The United States of America, pursuant to Articles 41 and 42 of the Convention, reserves the right to assume obligations under Chapter II of the Convention in a manner consistent with its fundamental principles of federalism.
