Spanish term or phrase: Principio real o de Protección de Intereses
A heading from the June 2000 draft version of the Honduran Penal Code to do with jurisdiction, territoriality, extradition, etc.:

I have done net searches and found it referred to in other Hispanic law texts but can find no reference to its use in English, despite trying various possibilities.
