The European Arrest Warrant – a problem that’s not going away

Last Monday, Paliamemt’s long-awaited debate and vote on the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) descended into a navel-gazing farce. This week, there will be a second chance in the House of Commons.

Today, the Mail on Sunday features an interview with the latest victim, Keith Hainsworth, a Greek tutor from Hampton, caught up in an absurd Greek EAW, which turned his life upside down and cost him around £40k in legal fees. You can read the account here.

I have written a column to accompany the interview with the Hanisworths, which you can read here.
