Berlin warns it will stop extradition of Germans to UK after Brexita

Germany has warned that it will immediately stop extraditing its citizens to the United Kingdom following Brexit even if London leaves the European Union with a deal, the Financial Times reports.
The Sunday report has quoted a formal notification submitted by Germany to the European Commission last week, which cites concerns faced by Britain and the EU in maintaining their security cooperation at the current level after Brexit on March 29.
Under its constitution, Germany has strict limits to the extradition of its nationals. The only potential exceptions permitted are for requests from other EU countries, which are made via the European Arrest Warrant, or to an international court.
This means Berlin will reject any British requests to arrest German nationals after Brexit, even if a planned 21-month transition period comes into force.
