Mutual trust remains until we leave: notification of intention to leave the EU not an exceptional circumstance

This blog reviews Case C-327/18 PPU Judgment of the Court (First Chamber) 19 September 2018. In short: “Mere notification” is not an exceptional circumstance within the meaning of the case law which is capable of justifying a refusal to execute an EAW. Substantial grounds to believe that the requested person is at risk of being deprived of rights recognised by the Charter and the Framework Decision, following the withdrawal from the EU of the issuing MS, are required for the MS to refuse to execute the EAW while the issuing MS remains a member of the EU.
