Extradition of German citizens to Azerbaijan

German citizens are protected against extradition to third countries such as Azerbaijan by Art. 16 (2) GG. Third states are states that do not belong to the European Union. Furthermore, according to Art. 6 I a of the agreement, each party can refuse to extradite its own nationals.

Extradition of non-German EU Citizens to Azerbaijan

Non-German EU citizens may be extradited from Germany to third countries. The ECJ ruled in the Petruhhin and Pisciotti cases that neither the general prohibition of discrimination under Article 18 TFEU nor the free movement of persons under Article 21 TFEU was violated. However, the Member State to which the person concerned belongs has a priority right to transfer its national and must be informed for this purpose prior to extradition.

Removal of a Red Notice from Azerbaijan – Worldwide

If Azerbaijan requests a person’s apprehension and subsequent extradition, the Azerbaijani authorities can obtain an Interpol Red Notice for this person. Such a Red Notice can be challenged as a precautionary measure or only when it becomes known. Our experienced lawyers for extradition law will submit requests for information to the respective National Central Bureaus (NCBs) on your behalf, prepare and file corresponding protective letters and work unerringly towards the deletion of the Red Notice – so that you can once again move freely in the world without worrying about an imminent arrest and the associated consequences and risks.
