Threatened extradition to a third country can mean more than the deprivation of liberty itself. In some cases, the concerned persons must also fear for their physical integrity, even their lives.

Between Germany and Egypt, extraditions can be executed on a non-contractual basis according to the requirements of the respective general laws. In Germany, non-contractual extraditions are governed by the IRG, the Law on International Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters.
Since 2003, Germany has decided on twelve extradition requests from Egypt. Four were rejected, eight were terminated in other ways, and none has been granted.
