Extradition between Germany and Brazil

German Extradition and Interpol Lawyers

The threat of extradition to a third country can mean more than the deprivation of liberty itself. In some cases, the person concerned also has to fear for their physical integrity, even for their very lives. Therefore, an extradition request usually represents an enormous emotional burden and a legal challenge, which should only be faced with experienced legal support.  

Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte is an internationally active law firm specialising, among other things, in the representation of clients in extradition proceedings. Our German extradition lawyers have the necessary expertise and many years of experience in dealing with Interpol and the extradition authorities to represent you with equal competence and commitment during this difficult time. We support clients who are to be extradited from or to Germany. We use all our expertise and experience to obtain the cancellation of Interpol Red Notices, regardless of which country initiated them.  

Although Brazil and Germany cooperate closely in many areas and many German immigrants live in Brazil, there is still no agreement regarding extraditions. However, according to the general regulations, extraditions can also take place without an agreement. The requirements for this in Germany are governed by the IRG, the Law on International Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters. The extradition statistics of the Federal Ministry of Justice (BMJ) show that extradition between Brazil and Germany is relatively rare. Most recently, in 2019, extradition to Germany was granted in 2 cases. Extraditions to Brazil have not occurred for several years now. Although Brazil requested extradition in some cases between 2014 and 2017, these were always refused. The last extradition took place in 2013 after court approval.  

However, looking at the past is no guarantee for future cases. It must always be examined on a case-by-case basis whether there are obstacles to extradition. Both the individual circumstances of the person concerned and legal and social developments in the requesting state must be considered.
