Opinion 278 (2010) Final version
Draft third Additional Protocol to the European Convention on Extradition
Origin: Text adopted by the Standing Committee, acting on behalf of the Assembly, on 21 May 2010 (see Doc. 12235, report of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, rapporteur: Mr Xuclà i Costa).

The Parliamentary Assembly fully supports the draft third additional protocol to the European Convention on Extradition (ETS No. 24) . It is satisfied that the protocol concerns only extradition cases in which the person concerned has given his or her valid consent, as protected by appropriate procedural safeguards. By speeding up uncontroversial extradition cases, the protocol makes a welcome contribution towards reducing the length of pre-trial detention in appropriate cases.
