International and European Criminal Law / Extradition Law / Interpol

Criminal law is an international matter. Many criminal provisions are now immediately based on or reference European Union law. Criminal prosecutions and searches also are no longer confined within national borders.

The European Arrest Warrant is now a firmly established tool in European extraditions and the number of international arrest warrants (INTERPOL red notices) continues to rise. With the European Investigation Order in Criminal Matters, further tools have been created to aid efforts between EU member states to retrieve evidence.
