Luxembourg's laws allow police to detain foreign nationals for up to 24 hours without charge.
If arrested, you have the following rights:
- to remain silent until a lawyer can advise you
- to be informed of accusations in a language you can understand (questions are usually in French or German)
- to use an interpreter
- to contact your embassy or consulate and one other person
The website www.barreau.lu lists lawyers who speak multiple languages. For more information, visit www.police.public.lu.
Cannabis is decriminalised in Luxembourg but fines range from €250 to €2500 if you're caught with any in your possession; all other drugs are illegal and subject to hefty prison sentences.
