Extraterritoriality & Extradition


Active extraterritoriality is provided for SEC-related crimes if the perpetrator is present in Algeria. Double criminality is not required.

Extradition is exclusively governed by international conventions ratified by Algeria. Additionally, Algerians cannot be extradited. Extraditable offences are “délits” punishable by the requesting State with at least two years, or a condemnation of at least two months of imprisonment, as well as “crimes” punishable by the requesting State. Double criminality is required.
