Representing a Belgian citizen in an extradition case

In 2015–2016, Giedrius Danėlius acted as the main defence lawyer for a Belgian citizen of Moroccan descent in a court case regarding his extradition to the United States of America.

In the autumn of 2015, Ibrahim Ahmadoun was arrested at Vilnius Airport under a warrant issued by Vilnius Court soon after he arrived from Amsterdam. The man who worked as a flight coordinator at Antwerp International Airport was accused of planning to give clearance to a private jet carrying a tonne of cocaine.

These proceedings were part of a high-profile international case that received coverage in the US media.
