Commenting on Theresa May’s speech in Munich, the directors of Due Process, Professor Tim Evans and David Clark said:

“Due Process commends the Prime Minister in her efforts through her Munich speech to reassure European and Nato partners that the UK will remain fully committed to international cooperation on security and defence following Brexit.

“Nevertheless, we continue to urge the Prime Minister to consider whether the European Arrest Warrant sufficiently serves that aim whilst undermining – as it does – the cornerstone legal principle of presumption of innocence.

“Rather than settling for political expediency Due Process recommends taking full advantage of Brexit to reassert the principle that British jurisprudence must not be compromised by any legal convergence.”
