Rahman Ravelli explains to Thomson Reuters the implications of the UK’s proposal to replace the European Arrest Warrant scheme

19 November 2020

Posted in: Bribery & Corruption.

Rahman Ravelli has been assessing the likely effects of the UK’s proposal to replace the European Arrest Warrant scheme with its own regime.

The UK’s plan to introduce what it hopes will be a fast-track system has been criticised for being likely to slow down extraditions. The new proposals were detailed by the National Crime Agency in a letter to MPs.

Rahman Ravelli has expressed the view that any new system that is introduced will need a transition period. It has argued that while a new scheme may eventually prove workable and meet the needs it is created for, it is almost inevitable that it will lead to delays initially.

According to Rahman Ravelli, the NCA has been making efforts to preserve intelligence sharing capabilities in the post-Brexit era. Yet it emphasises that at present the NCA has nothing finalised, even though the deadline for such arrangements to be in place is looming.
