Article R53-31 of the French Code of Criminal Procedure

The person who has benefited from the provisions of the first paragraph of Article 706-58 is informed that he or she must notify the public prosecutor of any changes of address during the year following the hearing.

The summonses and subpoenas of this person are made through the intermediary of the public prosecutor. If the latter finds on this occasion that the person has changed address, he shall enter his new address in the register provided for in the second paragraph of Article 706-57, alongside the previous one. The same applies if he is directly informed by this person of his change of address.

When the person has changed address and the summons or summons to appear cannot be delivered to him or her, the requesting court is immediately informed by the Public Prosecutor.

Original in French 🇫🇷
Article R53-31

La personne ayant bénéficié des dispositions du premier alinéa de l’article 706-58 est avisée qu’elle doit faire connaître, pendant l’année qui suit son audition, ses changements d’adresse au procureur de la République.

Les convocations et citations à comparaître de cette personne sont effectuées par l’intermédiaire du procureur de la République. Si celui-ci constate à cette occasion que la personne a changé d’adresse, il inscrit sa nouvelle adresse dans le registre prévu au deuxième alinéa de l’article 706-57, en marge de la précédente. Il en est de même s’il est directement informé par cette personne de son changement d’adresse.

Lorsque la personne a changé d’adresse et que la convocation ou la citation à comparaître ne peut lui être remise, la juridiction mandante en est immédiatement informée par le procureur de la République.
