Request for a preliminary ruling from the Hanseatisches Oberlandesgericht in Bremen (Germany) lodged on 16 September 2016.

Questions referred:

Are Article 1(3), Article 5 and Article 6(1) of Council Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA 1 of 13 June 2002 on the European arrest warrant and the surrender procedures between Member States to be interpreted as meaning that the executing Member State, when taking a decision on extradition for the purposes of prosecution, must eliminate any real risk of inhuman or degrading treatment of the person sought, within the meaning of Article 4 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, attributable to the conditions of his detention only in the first prison in which that person will be imprisoned following his surrender to the issuing Member State?

Must the executing State, when taking that decision, also eliminate any real risk of inhuman or degrading treatment of the person whose surrender is sought that may be attributable to the conditions of his detention in the place of his subsequent imprisonment in the event of conviction?

Must the executing State eliminate that risk for the person whose surrender is sought also in the event of possible relocations to other prisons?
