extradition to Ireland

Zurück zur Länderliste


Extradition to Ireland is possible on the basis of a European arrest warrant. This means that extradition to Ireland may also be considered for prosecution for German nationals, but only for prosecution, not for execution. In general, a German citizen is only extradited to a member state for criminal prosecution on the basis of an EU arrest warrant, while execution of sentence has to take place in Germany.

The European arrest warrant (EAW) may have to be exchanged between the German judicial authorities and the Irish Ministry of Justice.

Conversely, arrest in Ireland is currently only taking place after the European arrest warrant has been issued, while in Germany preliminary extradition detention can be ordered on the basis of the Interpol search already.
