On 12 September 2020, Alex Tinsley of 9 Bedford Row’s Extradition team spoke at the postponed Spring conference of the European Criminal Bar Association (ECBA). He delivered a presentation on the current status of negotiations vis a vis post-Brexit extradition arrangements between the UK and EU (slides available here). He then chaired a panel on ne bis in idem with a judge of the Italian Court of Cassation and a senior Italian lawyer, before presenting on the overlap between violations of European extradition specialty rules and the concept of arbitrary detention in international human rights law.
Alex is a member of the Human Rights Committee of the ECBA and enjoys trusted relationships with ECBA colleagues from across the Council of Europe region.
