Extradition of non-German EU Citizens to Kosovo

The extradition of EU citizens to third countries, such as Kosovo, is possible in principle and, according to the ECJ, does not violate the general prohibition of discrimination or the free movement of persons in the EU, Article 18 and 21 TFEU. In the Petruhhin and Pisciotti cases, the ECJ ruled that the Member State to which the person concerned belongs has the primary right to transfer and must therefore be informed.
