Case Law C-296/08 PPU (12/08/2008)

Type: Judgment

Authority: European Authorities: Euopean Communities' Court of Justice

Date: 08/12/2008

Subject: The Court, interpreting the relation between the Framework Decision on the European arrest warrant and the Convention relating to extradition between the Member States of the European Union, ruled that Article 31 of the Framework Decision must be interpreted as referring only to the situation in which the European arrest warrant system is applicable, which is not the case where a request for extradition relates to acts committed before a date specified by a Member State in a statement made pursuant to Article 32 of the Framework Decision. The Court moreover affirmed that Article 32 of the Framework Decision must be interpreted as not precluding the application by an executing Member State of the 1996 Convention, even where that convention became applicable in that Member State only after 1 January 2004.

Parties: Ignacio Pedro Santesteban Goicoechea
