International Extradition Laws
A victory like this shows not only the firm’s legal expertise but its deep commitment to protecting the rights of its clients as well.
Understanding the Case: The Interplay of International Extradition Laws and Local Fraud Charges
The epicentre of this high-stakes legal battle was a Russian expatriate residing in the UAE. She found herself ensnared by an international arrest warrant issued by her homeland, underpinning a purported fraud case dating back to 2010-2011. But fear not, the legal eagles at Amal Khamis Advocates were ready to take flight, equipped with their comprehensive knowledge of the international extradition treaty between UAE and Russia, as well as the local laws regulating fraud charges.
Request for Extradition: The Collision of Legal Provisions
This war of words and laws reached a critical point when Russian prosecution authorities came knocking, armed with a request for extradition. However, our vigilant defenders of justice were quick to point out a glaring discrepancy. They skillfully referenced Article 4 of the extradition treaty with UAE, boldly stating, ‘no extradition shall occur if a statute of limitation exists for the alleged crime under UAE law.’
Statute of Limitation: The Unsung Hero
In this particular case, Amal Khamis Advocates harnessed the power of Article 20 of the Criminal Procedures Law. This law elucidates that any fraud charge, deemed a misdemeanor, becomes null and void five years after the alleged incident.
The Defense’s Stand: A Beaming Beacon of Legal Expertise
The exceptional lawyers at Amal Khamis Advocates asserted that our client’s alleged crime was snugly within the boundaries of such a definition. Consequently, the extradition request was promptly dismissed, showcasing the prowess of the firm’s deep understanding of legal nuances.
Success: A Testament to Unwavering Dedication
Amal Khamis Advocates stood tall, applauding the unwavering dedication of their team in identifying and arguing the law flawlessly on behalf of their client. Their victory is an illustration of not just their legal expertise but their deep commitment to safeguarding their clients’ rights. “This is yet another success in a sensitive area of law. Our client’s rights were preserved, and he can now move forward with his life here in the UAE,” they shared, echoing a testament to their legal excellence.
