UK Home Secretary suggests extradition cooperation will continue post-Brexit

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd has said that she will publish a proposal for a post-Brexit security treaty with the EU, which will seek to maintain links on extradition, evidence sharing, and arrests. In a newspaper article, the Home Secretary said that a new treaty would “allow us to maintain and strengthen our current level of co-operation”, including remaining a part of Europol, and emphasised the importance of retaining the benefits of the European Arrest Warrant. She added that her conversations with her EU counterparts gave her “a lot of encouragement” that this would be possible.
