European Arrest Warrants

Question for Home Office

UIN HL8347, tabled on 5 June 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of which of the other EU member states have constitutional or other domestic legislation which prevent extradition under the European Arrest Warrant to a non-EU third country.

At present the European Arrest Warrant applies only between countries within the European Union. EU Member States make other provisions for extradition to non-EU countries.

Regarding our future relationship with the EU, the UK is seeking a comprehensive security relationship which preserves mutually important operational capabilities whilst allowing the UK and EU to continue to work together to combat fast evolving security threats. The UK’s position is that it is the interests of both the UK and the EU that the efficient and reliable operational capabilities provided by the EAW continue and we are working with the EU and Member States to ensure that this is the case.
