The Government has always been clear that Gibraltar is an integral part of our negotiations with the EU and we have committed to involve Gibraltar fully as we negotiate the next stage of the UK-EU relationship.

The UK is not seeking to participate in the European Arrest Warrant as part of the future relationship. The agreement should instead provide for fast-track extradition arrangements, based on the EU’s Surrender Agreement with Norway and Iceland which came into force in 2019, but with appropriate further safeguards for individuals beyond those in the European Arrest Warrant.
