Provisional Arrest

Extradition Request to Indonesia


If there is an urgent matter when it is believed that a fugitive located in a particular jurisdiction may flee from the jurisdiction and there is insufficient available time to prepare the Extradition request, a country can seek a provisional arrest of the fugitive to Indonesia through Interpol channels or to Indonesian Attorney Generals’ Office through diplomatic channel. If the request is accepted, the requested person can be arrested prior to the submission of Extradition request. Provisional arrest is applicable to the request with treaty or non-treaty based country with Indonesia. Guarantee of the dual criminality principle is mandatory, which shall be made in writing attached to the Extradition or provisional arrest request.
