statute forbids personal maltreatment or extortion even in the case of a
convicted homicide. Aristocrates, by making him liable to seizure, has permitted
such misusage; for it will be competent for captors to treat the man as they
will. The statute provides that the culprit shall be conveyed to the judges,
even though arrested in the country of his victim. He allows the homicide on
seizure to be taken to the house of the prosecutor, even though the capture be
effected in foreign parts.
