Freedom of movement within Europe has a history of more than a half century. Some parts of Europe, named as “shelters”, are still used by the transnational criminal groups. They provide them with logistics services; opportunities to recruit staff and groups have some benefits within the local bank system. Those circumstances, especially in divided and post-conflict societies, allowed the expansion of terrorism, money laundering and other forms related to organized crime. Faced with contemporary threats, Europe was forced to introduce new mechanisms to combat these types of crime. Europe needed to establish the criteria - conditions and procedures that regulate its mechanisms as a part of police and judiciary cooperation. Among many solutions and initiatives of cooperation, it resulted in the creation of the European arrest warrant as a response to the expansion and intensity of the activities of criminal offenders. The paper deals with the factors that promoted the unique mechanism of the European arrest warrant, and provides an analysis based on review of EU legal acts. The preliminary impressions and experiences from the implementation of European arrest warrant will be presented shortly through the reports of the European Commission and Eurojust.
Keywords: European Arrest Warrant, European Union, procedure, authorities.
