In the past, the venue for trial and incarceration/execution would be the country that you LAST were physically present - as was the accepted practice of maritime international law from a long time ago.

So, the correct answer may be different in todays lawyer ultra-controlled world. Nowadays it might even be the country of which lawyer can produce/demand the highest inflated 'billable hours'.
