EU Arrest Warrant farce

The Italians seem to be believing that Hussain Osman the suspected Shepherd's Bush July 21 bomber is just a very naughty boy: Telegraph | News | Terror suspects very probably amateurs, say Italian police

Investigations "lead us to believe as very probable that he belongs to a spontaneous group rather than a structured organisation that had broader terrorist projects", he said.

he will be extradited to Britain "soon", though the formalities, even under a new fast track European Arrest Warrant, could take up to 90 days, as Osman is likely to contest the request.

Just happened to take part in an organised co-ordinated bombing, could happen to anyone I suppose. Of course when Tony rushed through the EU Arrest Warrant it was a vital aid in the fight against terrorism:

BBC News | UK POLITICS | Battle looms over EU arrest warrant

"It is manifestly in this country's interest to have a procedure that is a fast-track procedure for extraditing people to this country from European countries... what this will do is simplify the procedure enormously."

The pact obliges any EU country to hand over suspects of serious crimes to any other member state without lengthy and complex extradition procedures.

So we tore up our liberties and for what?

And the EU Arreest Warrant is not recognised by the German courts, so any future terrorist should hide in Berlin...

"They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security."

...and so we have neither.
