EUROPEAN ARREST WARRANT EXTENDS ITS REACH INTO NORWAY AND ICELAND

On 31st October, a news release from Eurojust advised that an Agreement between EU Member States, Norway and Iceland will apply as of 1st November and will lead to an easier and faster surrender of suspects and convicted people, avoiding long extradition procedures, and ensuring that justice can be done faster.  Norway, Iceland and EU Member States must now, in principle, surrender their own nationals , if so requested, unless a declaration to the contrary is made by a given State.
