A TOP judge has become embroiled in the politically explosive debate over Britain’s ties with Europe after criticising a central plank of European Union justice powers as “unworkable”.
Lord Justice Thomas, the country’s most senior extradition judge, said the European arrest warrant “becomes unworkable in the end” because the court, prison and police systems of some less developed EU countries were not “up to scratch”.
He signalled that some nations had such low standards of criminal justice that the legal rights of British citizens were damaged when they were extradited to face trial there.
I think this is fairly obvious. Half the continent doesn\’t have jury trial nor even habeas corpus.
