Catch me if you can: The European Arrest Warrant under scrutiny
The aim of the event is to analyse existing problems of the European Arrest Warrant arising from its application or its design, such as abusive use of the mechanism by some Member States, application of the double criminality requirement or listing of categories with automatic recognition. Latest developments like the Brexit or the on-going Article 7 procedures against two Member States could create additional challenges to the effective functioning of the mechanism. Finally, the panellist shall discuss current ideas for a reform of the European Arrest Warrant and possible ways forward.

Q: Is there any updated statistics available on the use of the European Supervision Order? Are there any known cases of ESOs issued in substitution of EAWs after the exchange of information/consultation between the executing and the issuing authority? (to Jana Gajdošová)
Q: In several cases of European arrest warrant put in place by European Countries we have registered excessive discretion. Today at least in Italy, there is a strong need to make this tool more effective and to improve it under the profile of binding and reciprocity. Do you think this path is practicable and that this need is shared by the majority of European countries? Don't you think that the political problem of mutual trust between judicial systems of European countries should be seriously addressed? Thank you (to Maité Pagazaurtundúa)
