Anthony Fitzsimmons (Flight International 18-24 May), is totally correct. What surprises me is that as a legal person he does not seem to have appreciated before the air traffic incident he refers to that the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) has much wider ramifications for ordinary people all over Europe.


The EAW combined with EUROPOL makes a frightening combination. EUROPOL has total immunity from prosecution and is therefore able to do anything it pleases at any time. So it's not just air traffic controllers who should be quaking in their boots.
