Free Speech and the European Arrest Warrant
Posted by rantingkraut on October 5, 2008
Gerald Fredrick Töben, a holocaust denier, has been arrested in the UK following an extradition request from Germany. The Telegraph points out how this case shows neatly what is wrong with the European Arrest Warrant:
“The Government wrongly signed up to the European Arrest Warrant, and to the accelerated procedures for extraditing people arrested in Britain to other EU countries.
Dr Toben’s case is precisely the sort of incident which ministers assured us would never happen. They said the warrant was only for terrorists and drug dealers. Now that it is being used to punish opinions, our government and judges have an obligation to throw it out.” (Source)
