FTI’s submission to the European Union on the EAW

August 14, 2009

Fair Trials International’s submission to the European Union Justice and Home Affairs Council Working Group presents the case for reform of the European Arrest Warrant (EAW). The submission argues that reform is needed to ensure the EAW delivers justice in combating and punishing serious cross-border crime, as originally intended, without undermining the core EU values of upholding the rule of law and guaranteeing the right to a fair trial for all citizens.

The submission, which can be downloaded below, outlines the main problems with the EAW, suggests ways to improve it, and presents a series of case studies to highlight the human costs of the EAW as it now operates.
