The European Detention Order & Extradition
Our Criminal Lawyers help clients who have been detained under the European Detention Order, for all countries in Europe.
Extradition is a proceeding for which an accused or condemned person, for a crime under the Law of a European State, is detained in another state and is returned to the state where they are sought for criminal prosecution, or for the serving of a sentence or security precaution.
It is regulated in Spain under international extradition deals, the Law of Criminal Prosecution and the Law of Passive Extradition of 1985.
Our lawyers note that extradition is not permitted in all cases, for example, members of the political press cannot be extradited, however, people who have committed acts of terrorism are not considered as political press. Similarly, it is not permitted when the requesting state has not given sufficient guarantees. Cases involving extradition are complex and there are various means of avoiding the extradition of a client.
Also, our Spanish Lawyers can help if you have been arrested in your country and Spain is asking for you to be extradited to Spain.
On their part, the European Detention Order and delivery is a judicial resolution stated in a member state of the European Union, with the aim of detaining criminals and handing them over to the other State within the European Union. A person is recalled for: carrying out criminal actions (extradited for prosecution) or for carrying out a sentence or security precaution, with the deprivation of liberty (extradition for the completion of a sentence). This proceeding substitutes the extradition proceeding through the application of a smoother system of delivering wanted persons.
Our Spanish Criminal Lawyers have partaken in many successful cases, making detentions void without going against the requirements demanded by Law.
