Berlin will stop extraditing Germans to Britain immediately after Brexit even if it leaves the European Union with a deal, the Financial Times reported (on.ft.com/2DPMBED) on Sunday, citing a formal notification submitted by Germany to the European Commission last week.

The notification cites concerns faced by Britain and the EU in maintaining their security cooperation at the current level after Brexit, according to the report.

Britain is due to leave the EU on March 29.
