Dear Customer,thank you for using Just Answer.It is in our Constitution ( Grundgesetz) that German citizens must not be extradited. Art 16 GGHowever it is possible in certain cases.These cases are extradition to an international court ( like the one in Den Haag) or in countries that are members of the European Union.So there is not going to be an extradition to Canada.I hope I was able to helpIf so please click acceptThank youBest XXXXXattorney-at-law
I need to have some more details. Who can be extradited and for what? I was told only murderers and war criminals. Is this true? I need to be absolutely certain. Please give me the exact details? Art 16 GG? All the things a lawyer would need to defend someone in court? Once I have these, I will accept your answer! Also can I have your contact details, so I can hire you on in case this does go to court? I am currently in Germany. Thanks!
Dear Customer,yes murderers and war criminals and similar crimes are basically it.For other crimes extradition only is possible within the EUIt is in § 80 Gesetz über die internationale Rechtshilfe in Strafsachen 80 Auslieferung deutscher Staatsangehöriger(1) Die Auslieferung eines Deutschen zum Zwecke der Strafverfolgung ist nur zulässig, wenn1.gesichert ist, dass der ersuchende Mitgliedstaat nach Verhängung einer rechtskräftigen Freiheitsstrafe oder sonstigen Sanktion anbieten wird, den Verfolgten auf seinen Wunsch zur Vollstreckung in den Geltungsbereich dieses Gesetzes zurückzuüberstellen, und2.die Tat einen maßgeblichen Bezug zum ersuchenden Mitgliedstaat aufweist.You cannot be extradited for drug related uses.In order to defend someone I need:a power of attorney ( in the original)the complete file ( which I get from court)my fees in advanceI hope I was able to helpYou can contact me via emailClaudiaMarieSchiessl(at)googemail(dot)comJA`s General Terms and Conditions require that you accept firstAfter that I will be at your sevice and you can mail me and phone meBestC.
