Surrender Agreement Brexit
It is interesting to note that the agreement between Norway and Iceland provides for the abolition of the mutual criminal obligation for exactly the same list of criminal offences, with the requirement that the offence be punishable by a penalty of three years or more and an integrated opt-out clause. Whether or not the United Kingdom would accept the actual reintroduction of the framework list is not clear at this time. According to the UK government`s written statement on the future relationship, “it is in the mutual interest of the UK and the EU to reach a pragmatic agreement on prosecution and judicial cooperation”. However, the UK government`s position states that EU legislation “must in no way restrict the autonomy of the UK legal system”.
