The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) are the designated authorities in the UK for the receipt and transmission of European arrest warrants (EAWs).

Since 1 January 2004 until 31 March 2009, UK authorities transmitted 836 EAWs to other EU member states. These resulted in 376 people being surrendered to the UK.

It is not possible from current systems to break down this data into the nationality of the subject. A breakdown of data by nationality of the subject could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) are the designated authorities in the UK for the receipt and transmission of European arrest warrants (EAWs). SOCA cannot comment on the number EAWs transmitted between other EU member states.

SOCA is only able to provide details of EAW requests processed by the agency and formerly by the National Criminal Intelligence Service. These figures were given in a previous reply on 9 June 2009, Official Report, columns 814-15W.
