International Criminal Law

We regularly handle criminal cases with international components. In addition to ordinary criminal cases, these often include extradition and surrender procedures. This usually concerns a person who has been arrested in the Netherlands at the request of another state. This can be for the execution of a sentence as well as for trial in an ongoing criminal case.

If you have a demonstrable relationship with the Netherlands, you can in many cases be suspended pending the hearing of your case. Even if you are suspended, it is crucial to act quickly. Often, procedures need to be launched in the country that requested your extradition / surrender. We have a large network and will, if necessary and desired, hire a foreign lawyer to conduct a procedure for you.

Our lawyers are specialized in these international procedures and will assist you. It is precisely in these complex transboundary cases that it is important to be assisted by a specialist.
