Former Eurojust presidents questioned on the European Arrest Warrant

05 April 2017

The EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee takes evidence from Mike Kennedy, former President of Eurojust and former Chief Operating Officer of the Crown Prosecution Service, and Aled Williams, former President of Eurojust, on the options for replacing the European Arrest Warrant after the UK leaves the EU, and whether an interim arrangement would be easier to negotiate than a permanent replacement.


Wednesday 5 April in Committee Room 3, Palace of Westminster

At 10.45am

  • Mike Kennedy, Former President of Eurojust and Former Chief Operating Officer of the Crown Prosecution Service
  • Aled Williams, Former President of Eurojust

Possible questions

  • Is it clear what the Government’s ‘red line’ on CJEU jurisdiction amounts to in practice, or is more than one interpretation possible?
  • How might the UK “remain part of the [EAW] arrangement” from outside the EU – the prospect raised by the Home Secretary?
  • What are the prospects of the EU-27 continuing to extradite their own nationals to the UK after Brexit and vice-versa?
