At 10.30am

  • Professor John Spencer CBE, Professor Emeritus of Law, University of Cambridge

Possible questions

  • Which Member States do you believe will refuse to extradite their own nationals during the transition period?
  • Where there is a refusal to extradite own nationals, what arrangements should apply where an EAW was issued before Brexit day for the relevant persons, but not yet executed?
  • Do you see a need for new institutions to be established to facilitate extradition between the UK and EU and vice versa, once the UK leaves the EU?
