UK to withdraw from European arrest warrant

Government document reveals plans to ditch tool that allows for fast extradition of criminals (many are innocent and have committed no crime yet

British judges handed them over regardless of the lack of evidence against them – people like Lyn Thyer whose only ‘crime’ was to cure cancer, today rotting uncharged and unconnected in a French jail with no date set for her release)

The UK is to abandon a crucial tool used to speed up the transfer of criminals across borders with other European countries.

Acting against the warnings of senior law enforcement officials, the government said it would not be seeking to participate in the European arrest warrant (EAW) as part of the future relationship with the European Union.

In a document setting out the UK’s approach to negotiations with the EU, the government said: “The agreement should instead provide for fast-track extradition arrangements, based on the EU’s surrender agreement with Norway and Iceland which came into force in 2019, but with appropriate further safeguards for individuals beyond those in the European arrest warrant.”

    I wrote to Lyn at the end of December on her return to prison after more corruption on the part of Judge Gedaud. As her arrest warrant wasn’t even signed, she should have been released there and then. I used her new prison number but weeks later the letter was returned to me marked “unknown”. So I imagine that the authorities are not allowing her to receive mail again. To say she is “unknown” at Fleury-Mérogis is a total lie.

    She has been treated disgustingly and nobody has raised the alarm. David Noakes is facing something of the same. The European arrest warrant is a complete joke and as usual, the corrupt “justice” systems on both sides of the Channel are happy to comply to silence anyone who does or says anything they don’t like.
