Steve Peers, Human Rights and the European Arrest Warrant: Has the ECJ turned from poacher to gamekeeper?, Barnard & Peers: chapter 9, chapter 25, JHA4: chapter II:3, chapter II:4, EU Law Analysis. Expert insight into EU law developments, 12.11.2016

„This spring, the ECJ turned its attention to detention conditions in the Member State which issued the EAW. Following soon after concerns expressed by the German constitutional court on these issues (discussed here), the ECJ ruled in Aranyosi andCaldaruru that the German authorities, when executing EAWs issued by Hungary and Romania, had to consider concerns raised by the fugitives about prison overcrowding in those countries, which had led to ECtHR rulings finding violations of Article 3 ECHR (freedom from torture or other inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment). The national court had to apply a two-step procedure in such cases, assessing whether there was a) a systemic failure to ensure decent prison conditions in those States, and b) a ‘real risk’ that the individual fugitive would be subject to such conditions if the EAW was executed.”
