Have you been accused or convicted of a crime in a foreign country? Been arrested on an European Arrest Warrant? Worried about an International Arrest Warrant?
With an increasing population of European migrants living in the United Kingdom, extradition has become a rapidly growing area of law with Courts now seeing a growing number of individuals arrested on European Arrest Warrants.
International Arrest Warrants are also being used more frequently by countries outside the European Union to extradite requested persons involved in cybercrime, tax evasion, terrorism and the global fight against drugs and money laundering,
