16-12-2013

On 17 June 2013, the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) requested a European Added Value Assessment (EAVA) to support its work on the legislative initiative report of Baroness Ludford which recommends to the Commission the revision of the European Arrest Warrant (2013/2109(INL)). This assessment builds on expert research commissioned specifically for this purpose and provided by: ANNEX I - A. Weyembergh, Professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) with the assistance of Mme I. Armada and C. Brière - on a critical assessment of the existing European Arrest Warrant Framework Decision; ANNEX II - A. Doobay – on the need for intervention at EU level, by assessing whether the European Arrest Warrant Framework Decision is effective, complete and consistently applied among Member States.
