European Arrest Warrant

The European Arrest Warrant has replaceed extradition within the EU. It is based on the idea of all states having a high standard of justice. It is being abused, judicial systems are not equal and people are being tried and convicted in absentia so an arrest warrant can be issued for something you know nothing about. This has got to be suspended until safeguards for the ordinary person are implemented.
