double criminality
Explanation:
"Por lo general, un estado sólo ejerce jurisdicción penal sobre delitos que ocurren dentro de sus límites geográficos. Si a una persona a quien se le impute haber cometido un delito en España se halla en el Reino Unido, España puede requerirle al Reino Unido que la extradite a España. La facultad de extraditar del Reino Unido por un "delito susceptible de extradición" está contenida actualmente en la Ley de Extradición de 1989. Esa Ley define qué constituye un "delito susceptible de extradición". A los fines del caso presente, el requerimiento más importante es que la conducta objeto de la demanda debe constituir un delito tanto en España como en el Reino Unido. Esto es conocido como la regla de la doble incriminación."

"12 According to the principle of double criminality, extradition will not be granted unless the offence for which it is requested constitutes an offence under the laws of both the requesting and the requested State. The principle of double criminality is of particular importance in protecting the basic interests of persons whose extradition is requested and, insofar as it is applicable, would also protect refugees against extradition. The principle would not, however, exclude the extradition of a person who fears persecution in the requesting State if the act alleged constitutes an offence under the law of both the requesting and the requested State."

double indemnity


Explanation:
Hope this helps! Usually this applies when the law says that one can only be charged for a crime in one jurasdiction - you can't be tried twice for the same crime. Good luck!

PLEASE DISREGARD MY EARLIER MESSAGE!


Explanation:
I'm sorry - I'm tired and retarded. What I meant to say was "double jeopardy" - that's when one is charged in crimes in two jurisdictions but by law can only be tried once for a single crime. Sorry! Anyway, the legal term is DOUBLE JEOPARDY. Good luck to you and good night!

double incrimination


Explanation:
I don't know if this helps, but the Council of Europe Fr-En legal dictionary gives the following for the French equivalent "double incrimination": "(extradition) requirement that the offence committed should be an offence in both countries; requirement of dual criminal liability". Does this make sense? If so, then a very literal translation seems appropriate. "Double jeopardy" seems tempting, but this is defined in the OED as "the placing of a person in jeopardy twice for the same offence, against which there is a common-law immunity".
