Article 424 of the Criminal Procedure Law

  Criminal Procedure Law

If he witness resides abroad, the request will be addressed through diplomatic channels and through the Ministry of Grace and Justice to the foreign Judge competent to receive the declaration. The request must contain the necessary background information and indicate the questions to be asked of the witness, without damage that said Judge may expand them as his discretion and prudence suggest.

If the appearance of the witness before the investigating Judge or Court is essential and the witness does not appear voluntarily, the Ministry of Grace and Justice will be informed so that it can adopt the resolution it deems appropriate.
