Judgment of the Court of Justice in Case C-479/21 PPU – Governor of Cloverhill Prison and Others – External relations

The provisions in the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement concerning the European arrest warrant regime with respect to the United Kingdom and the provision in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the EU and the United Kingdom concerning the new surrender mechanism are binding on Ireland.
The inclusion of those provisions in those agreements did not justify the addition of a legal basis relating to the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice for the purpose of concluding those agreements, with the result that those provisions did not require, under Protocol No (21), that Ireland have the choice whether or not to opt in to them.
