Extradition Law

The UAE has deployed since 2006 a specific federal law known as Federal Law no.39 of 2006 on Mutual Judicial Co-operation in criminal matters. The law permits the UAE authorities only to hear the formal procedures and conditions of the extradition request regardless of the nature of the crime.

The legal case involving extradition can be challenging and complicated, since it may involve two countries (referred to states in such cases), which are the requesting state and the requested state and can affect the return of an individual who is up for trial for a crime that may be punishable under the laws of the requesting state.
