CALL FOR MORE POWERS TO EXTRADITE CRIMINALS
The Chief Constable of Merseyside calls for the Eurowarrant to be extended to suspects the police wish to interview. Also says low-cost flights make life easier for criminals. Argues that “second-division” criminals now hiding out abroad. The problem goes back a long way. Many European countries do not allow arrest for interrogation. You have to charge amd permit the suspect to have the protection of the law.
Maybe the Chief Constable would accept judicial control of investigation and we could start from there? Then we would be more in line with the overwhelming majority of our continental cousins.
