The man arrived in Portugal on a flight from Dakar, Senegal, but SEF border control staff picked up the fact that there was an International Arrest Warrant in his name and detained him, pending deportation.
The man, described only as ‘a foreigner,’ is being held while the Judicial Police get the paperwork in order prior to extradition.
The man faces charges in Germany for pedophilia, sexual assault, and the possession and dissemination of child pornography, the police said in a statement issued on Wednesday.
The detainee already has been in front of a judge at the the Lisbon Court of Appeal and is being held in cells in Lisbon.
