Institutional Arrest Warrants

Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what information the Serious Organised Crime Agency collects on institutional arrest warrants affecting UK citizens; and what responsibility the agency has to respond to inquiries from hon. Members. (107585)

[holding answer 6 December 2006]: The Serious Organised Crime Agency receives European Arrest Warrants, some of which relate to UK citizens. SOCA is also in receipt of circulations via the Interpol channel that refer to UK citizens. Circulations via the Interpol channel can be made on a bilateral, regional or worldwide basis; therefore Interpol London may not be made aware of all requests relating to UK citizens. However, SOCA will however do its best to respond to inquiries from hon. Members.
