Mamoun Darkanzali of Germany, Cesare Battisti and Harry Flynn in France, and Patrick Henry in Spain: These are all names that illustrate the difficulties encountered in the implementation and execution of extradition procedures within the European Union. It is clear that the borders allow the free movement of EU citizens within the area and are covered by the Schengen Agreement that transformed into walls when it comes to extradite individuals to the judge or the enforcement of a sentence.

Moreover, following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, member countries of the European Union have found themselves facing the need to strengthen judicial cooperation, to abolish the penal and judicial boundaries and increase its effectiveness in this area. While member countries of the EEC and the EU since 1957 were parties to the European Convention on Extradition, from the 1970s to the simplification and unification of the traditional extradition procedure, they were seen to be too political and too complex. Since 2002, the European arrest warrant replaced the instruments on extradition.

This document will study the passage of a legal process, within the space community and see how the European arrest warrant differs from extradition. In the first part, it will focus on the substitution of the MFA to the traditional extradition. Then in the second part, it will study the contributions of the MFA in classical extradition law. The European arrest warrant is a procedure to replace the traditional mechanism for extradition in the European Union.

Extradition is defined as a legal mechanism by which a state (state required) delivers a person who is present in its territory to another state (requesting state) who calls for prosecution or execution of a sentence.
