Extradition to Latvia under the European arrest warrant (EAW) is possible following the implementation in Latvia of Council Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA of 13 June 2002 on the European arrest warrant (EAW) and surrender procedures between Member States.

It is also possible to extradite German nationals to Latvia for prosecution, as is the case everywhere in the area covered by the European arrest warrant.
