A measure passed by the European Parliament two weeks ago, which our own government has just endorsed, would mean that no member state could refuse to extradite an individual sought by another member state - even if that individual had been given a heavy prison term after a trial at which he was not present, could not defend himself, and may not even have known about.

The right to defend yourself in person is "not absolute", says the new regulation, so EU has decided it can be dispensed with when doing so increases "efficiency".

Remember this next time the EU wants to lecture someone on "human rights". :roll:

That's amazingly Stalinesque. Of course, this means that the US should immediately withdraw all military and civilian personnel from any EU nation, since a moonbat judge in one country can now charge an American with a "war crime" and try him in absentia, then compel his presence from another nation. No US national is safe anywhere in Europe as long as any judge in any country, no matter how nuts, can decide their guilt without anything resembling due process.
