holding answer 21 June 2012
The UK has not implemented Council Decision 2008/978/JHA (European evidence warrant). Implementation was suspended when the UK opted into the European Investigation Order (EIO) in July 2010.
The UK must decide, no later than 31 May 2014, whether to accept full European Court of Justice jurisdiction over those EU police and criminal justice measures adopted before 1 December 2009 which have not been amended or replaced. The European evidence warrant falls within the scope of that decision and will be reviewed accordingly.
