Position of the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic on extradition
On 13 August, 2013, the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic stated its position regarding the principle of non-refoulement. According to the principle, the Minister of Justice should decide whether it is inadmissible to extradite a person to another country only after considering their application for political asylum or ‘international protection’. In the case of granting the application, the extradition of the person is not permitted.
Tatiana Paraskevich applied for ‘international protection’ in the Czech Republic on 9 April, 2013. Currently, the Ministry of Internal Affairs is considering her application. As long as the application is being considered, the Minister of Justice cannot approve her extradition.
