Abstract:Purpose: The potential tension between a state’s need to protect its citizens from national security risks and to respect fundamental human rights is illustrated by current controversies concerning the use of diplomatic assurances in the context of extradition. The need to respect inviolable human rights brings into play the use of assurances in extradition matters, especially if the right to life and prohibition of torture are concerned. Design/Methods/Approach: Inductive and deductive methods are used to systematise legal cases which contain human rights violations in extradition proceedings and hold a direct relationship with diplomatic assurances. The analytical method is applied to obtain a clearer picture about violations of human rights in the extradition process. Findings: Diplomatic assurances are given by the requesting states for the purpose of supporting the extradition request and assuring that criminal offenders will not be subjected to ill-treatment or violations of other human rights guaranteed by the European Convention of Human Rights. Research Limitations / Implications: In practice, it has been proven that diplomatic assurances are highly problematic because international law does not generally outlaw the use of such assurances, but establishes legal requirements concerning the use of such assurances in the extradition context. Originality/Value: The article reflects the use of diplomatic assurances in extradition cases, an area that has received greater attention in past years because many states have been found responsible for human rights violations, but at the same time many suspects have managed to avoid extradition because judicial authorities have denied extradition due to assurances not being given.

Title:Diplomatska zagotovila in odgovornost države pri obravnavanju izročitve oseb, ki so jim morda kršene človekove pravice
Abstract:Namen prispevka: Potencialna napetost med potrebami države po zaščiti svojih državljanov pred tveganji nacionalne varnosti in spoštovanjem temeljnih človekovih pravic je razvidna iz perečih polemik glede uporabe diplomatskih zagotovil na področju izročitve. Potreba po spoštovanju nedotakljivih človekovih pravic vodi v uporabo zagotovil v zadevah s področja izročitev, zlasti, če gre za pravico do življenja in prepoved mučenja. Metode: Za sistematizacijo pravnih primerov, ki vsebujejo kršitve človekovih pravic v postopkih izročitve in imajo neposredno povezavo z diplomatskimi zagotovili, so bile uporabljene induktivne in deduktivne metode. Za osvetlitev kršitev človekovih pravic v postopku izročitve je bila uporabljena analitična metoda. Ugotovitve: Države prosilke podajajo diplomatska zagotovila z namenom podpore prošnji za izročitev in z namenom zagotavljanja, da storilci kaznivih dejanj ne bodo podvrženi zlorabam ali kršitvam človekovih pravic, ki jih zagotavlja Evropska konvencija o človekovih pravicah. Omejitve/uporabnost raziskave V praksi se je izkazalo, da so diplomatska zagotovila zelo problematična, saj mednarodno pravo običajno ne prepoveduje uporabe takih zagotovil, temveč določa pravne zahteve glede uporabe teh zagotovil v zadevah s področja izročitev. Praktična uporabnost: Prispevek osvetljuje uporabo diplomatskih zagotovil v zadevah s področja izročitev – področja, ki je bilo v preteklih letih deležno večje pozornosti, saj so bile številne države spoznane za krive kršitev človekovih pravic, hkrati pa se je mnogim osumljencem uspelo izogniti izročitvi, ker so pravosodni organi zaradi odsotnosti zagotovil zavrnili izročitev.
