The judicial authorities competent to issue requests for mutual legal assistance are those set out in the declarations made by Italy in relation to the Convention on Mutual Assistance signed in Strasbourg on 20 April 1959. The authority competent to receive and execute requests for mutual legal assistance is, except where indicated below, the Public Prosecutor (Procuratore della Repubblica) at the Court of the administrative centre of the district in which the requested acts are to be carried out. Where the request for assistance concerns acts which need to be executed in more than one district, responsibility for their execution lies with the Public Prosecutor of the district in which the highest number of acts are to be carried out, or, if an equal number of acts are to be carried out in each district, the Public Prosecutor of the district in which the act of most importance to the investigation is to be carried out. If multiple related requests for assistance are issued, the Public Prosecutor designated to deal with the first request is responsible for their execution.

    Where the requesting authority asks that the act be carried out by a judge or where the fundamental principles of the Italian legal system require that the requested act be carried out by a judge, the authority competent to execute the request is the judge in charge of preliminary investigations (giudice per le indagini preliminari), at the request of the Public Prosecutor.

    (a) for the transmission of requests for assistance where judicial authorities have encountered insurmountable difficulties with direct transmission;
    (b) for the transmission of requests for assistance to authorities in the United Kingdom and Ireland, as long as those States continue not to use the direct transmission options provided for in Article 6(1) of the Convention;
