Extradition of German Citizens to Lebanon

In principle, German citizens are not extradited from Germany to third countries such as Lebanon. This protection is guaranteed to its citizens in the constitution. Exceptionally, Germans may be deported to other EU states or international courts, provided that the principles of the rule of law are upheld, Art. 16 (2) GG.

Extradition of non-German EU Citizens to Lebanon

EU citizens can be extradited from Germany to Lebanon. Crucially, the ECJ´s 2016 ruling in the Petruhhin case held that the general prohibition of discrimination, Art. 18 TFEU, in conjunction with the free movement of persons within the EU, Art. 21 TFEU, is not violated by extraditing an EU citizen from an EU member state. The 2018 judgment in the Pisciotti case solidifies this interpretation of Articles 18 and 21 TFEU. The Member State to which the person concerned belongs must be informed before extradition to a third country takes place. It has a priority right to the transfer of its citizen.

Removal of a Red Notice from Lebanon – Worldwide

If Lebanon requests a person’s apprehension and subsequent extradition, the Lebanese 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 Nation Central Bureaus (NCBs) on your behalf, prepare and file corresponding protective letters and work unerringly towards the cancellation of the Red Notice – so that you can once again move freely in the world without worrying about an immanent arrest and the associated consequences and risks.
