Question to the Home Office:
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate she has made of the number of Romanian criminals in the UK appealing extradition to Romania on the grounds that the size of prison cells in that country breach Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Answered by Brandon Lewis - Secretary of State for Northern Ireland
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is working closely with the Romanian Ministry of Justice to ensure that all wanted Romanians currently in the UK are extradited as quickly as possible. My officials continue to work with the CPS to obtain adequate assurances in respect of Romanian prison conditions to make extraditions possible.
