European Arrest Warrant, Extradition & Interpol

Individuals subject to extradition proceedings, arrest warrants or under INTERPOL notices have tools to make their defense arguments.

International criminal law provides States a range of procedures to enable them to have an individual arrested outside their borders.

Extradition and European arrest warrants are international criminal cooperation mechanisms which allow a requesting State to have an individual arrested by the State in which he/she is located in to prosecute him/her or enforcing a sentence.

The intergovernmental organization INTERPOL issues red notices, allowing law and order agencies of member states to proceed with the arrest of the targeted person. It is possible to obtain the withdrawal or red notices.

The preservation of the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals being essential, we bring our expertise in the defense of individuals subject to these procedures.
