October 2016 - Ireland

Brexit

The requested person challenged a European Arrest Warrant issued by UK authorities alleging the commission of multiple sexual offences. He resisted extradition on the basis of a significant delay in the proceedings which would undermine the requested erson’s ability to receive a fair trial on surrender to the UK. Additionally, the defence claimed that recent Brexit decision would also undermine the right to a fair trial inasmuch as deference to the fair trial safeguards of other states was itself premised upon a high level of confidence which derived from membership of the EU, entailing adherence to certain minimum standards and protections. The court rejected the argument an ordered the surrender.
