Extradition of German Citizens to Russia

The German constitution protects German citizens against extradition to so-called third states, Article 16 (2) GG. Third countries are countries that do not belong to the European Union. Extraditing German citizens to other EU countries and certain international courts is permitted in cases where “the rule of law is observed”. This allowance for extradition to EU countries is a recent development, but it does not extend to other countries (“third countries”), including Russia. The German state will take over the prosecution in cases where extradition orders are placed on German citizens.

Extradition of non-German EU Citizens to Russia

Extraditions of EU citizens are possible and, according to the ECJ, do not violate the general prohibition of discrimination, Article 18 TFEU, or the free movement of persons within the EU, Article 21 TFEU. However, the Member State to which the person concerned belongs has a priority right to transfer and must therefore be informed before extradition.
This protection also extends to citizens of countries within the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and countries within the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) such as Iceland.

Removal of a Red Notice from Russia – Worldwide

If Russia requests a person’s apprehension and subsequent extradition, the Russian authorities can easily 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) of Interpol 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.
