Who manages the EAW in Italy?

In Italy, the EAW is managed according to the principle of mutual recognition, provided it comes from a competent judicial authority.

Our legislation provides specific criteria for the acceptance and execution of these warrants, emphasizing the need for in-depth knowledge of international regulations and investigative collaboration procedures.

European Arrest Warrant Procedure

The EAW is a judicial procedure that requires assessing the seriousness of the offense, the duration of the penalty, and the cost-benefit ratio before issuance. Only offenses of a certain gravity can be subject to an EAW, following the principle of proportionality.

Key features of the EAW procedure:

Requirement of double criminality

For many offenses, the EAW bypasses the traditional requirement of double criminality, thus expediting the extradition of individuals sought for specific serious offenses.

Conditions for surrender

The surrender of an individual can only be refused for well-defined reasons under the law, such as a violation of the principles of a fair trial.
