Article Comparison - Convention between the Member States of the European Communities on Double Jeopardy

Article 3

If a Member State brings a further prosecution in respect of the same facts against a person whose trial has finally been disposed of in another Member State, any period of deprivation of liberty served in the latter Member State arising from those facts shall be deducted from any sanction imposed. To the extent permitted by national law sanctions not involving deprivation of liberty shall also be taken into account insofar as they have been enforced.
