Does the statute of limitations apply when the accused is jailed in another country? Let's say the accused is jailed for 50 years and the statute of limitations is 50 years, will the accused be able to escape justice after he comes back to the country where the statute of limitations applies? Are there any exception to this law?

    This will depend on the jurisdiction whose statute of limitation is involved, and it may depend on the existence or non-existence of a treaty . Jul 2 '21 at 22:39
