Extradition & INTERPOL Red Notices

Extradition is often a major issue for anyone facing prosecution in a foreign country. Managing extradition – and any INTERPOL Red Notice that may precede extradition – requires legal expertise and an ability to negotiate.

For individuals facing criminal prosecution in a foreign jurisdiction, extradition can often be one of the most critical stages of their overall defence. As frequent precursors to formal extradition proceedings, INTERPOL Red Notices can be equally important in terms of the extent to which a pending criminal case affects an individual’s freedom.

Rahman Ravelli’s extradition practice focuses on providing strategic advice to clients facing extradition from the UK to the US, EU and elsewhere. We have particular expertise in using extradition as leverage to negotiate with law enforcement authorities to discontinue the prosecution, reduce the charges or agree to a favourable bail package. We also act for clients seeking removal of Red Notices that are improperly motivated or otherwise flawed.

When it is in a client’s interests, our London-based team of US and UK-qualified lawyers work with law firms in the requesting state to either attack the extradition at its source or obtain information that can be used to undermine it before INTERPOL or the UK courts.

Representative matters:

  • Representation of an Irish national seeking to delete an INTERPOL Red Notice issued by the Brazilian authorities.
  • Representation of a British hedge-fund manager facing extradition to Germany on a European Arrest Warrant (EAW) in connection with his alleged participation in the multijurisdictional tax fraud scheme known as Cum-Ex.
  • Advice to the founder of one of the largest private investment firms in Qatar, in a challenge to an INTERPOL Red Notice, requested by Kuwaiti authorities in connection with a purported embezzlement and fraud scheme.
  • Extradition and bail advice to a London-based trader indicted for fraud offences in the US.
  • Representation of a Nigerian national facing extradition from the UK to the US for his alleged participation in a multinational scheme using stolen credit card numbers to purchase tens of millions of dollars’ worth of retail merchandise.
  • Advice to a UK barrister on aspects of US criminal law and Bureau of Prisons’ policies relevant to a client’s pending extradition proceedings.
