Pre-trial detention is ordered and carried out against such persons by judicial arrest warrant who, among other things, are urgently suspected of a serious criminal offense or who are at risk of absconding (§§ 112, 113 StPO). The duration of pre-trial detention is generally 6 months, but can also be extended under special conditions. Means against pre-trial detention is an application for detention review or a detention complaint.
In addition, the investigating authorities have the option of provisional arrest (§ 127 StPO). If the arrested person is not released again, he must be brought before the judge at the district court in whose district he was arrested immediately, at the latest on the day after the arrest (§ 128 StPO).
Should such an emergency arise, do not hesitate to contact me immediately.
