Defending theHuman Rightto a Fair Trial
April 11, 2011
The human rights charity Fair Trials International says EAWs are often used for minor crimes, which “puts huge pressure on the police and courts”.
It says extraditing people for petty crimes is “grossly disproportionate”.
The group also cites some “serious cases of injustice” involving EAWs. They include the case of Deborah Dark, a British woman pursued across Europe because of an EAW issued by France, although she had been cleared of drug charges years previously.
