22. January 2017

Berlin - January 17, 2017 - Turkey requests extradition but the Higher Regional Court in Berlin (resolution 17.01.2017 - (4) 151 AuslA 11/16 (10/17) rejected a request by the prosecution in Berlin (Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Berlin) and ordered that the persecuted immediately has to be released from custody.

In view of the political and judicial developments in the Republic of Turkey since the imposition of the state of emergency in July 2016, the Berlin Higher Regional Court (Kammergericht) is concerned that there  is definitively an obstacle against extradition from § 73 I IRG in conjunction with Article 3 of the ECHR.
