EU: Status of ratification of EU-US Agreements of 25 June 2003 on extradition and of bilateral instruments

Link (pdf)

It is interesting to note that the conclusion of these agreements requires all EU member states to effectively replace the many bilateral agreements they have with the USA - but when it comes to data protection (see story above) all bilateral agreements with member states and the EU with the USA on passing over data and intelligence on individuals are to remain untouched as to do so would: "jeopardise the informal excellent contacts developed over time by the US law enforcement agencies with their opposite numbers in the Member States" (EU-US JHA High level meeting in Helsinki on 18 July 2006).
