Corker Binning Partner Edward Grange and Kingsley Napley Partner, Rebecca Niplock write for New Law Journal on the key changes and similarities to extradition law following Brexit.
“This article looks at two of the legislative changes brought about since our second edition. The first change, the introduction of new surrender arrangements at Part III, Title VII of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) between the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community, of the one part, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, of the other part, while on its face an overhaul, was in fact surprisingly similar to the previous arrangements in the form of the European arrest warrant (EAW) system. The second change, the Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Act 2020 (E(PA)A 2020) was ostensibly intended to deal with an issue that arose in extradition to states outside the EU; however, many commentators (and some legislators) recognised that the introduction of the Bill in the year leading up to Brexit day was no coincidence.”
