What is an EAW?

The Republic of Hungary has issued a European Arrest Warrant against Ciaran Tobin. It is valid, according to law, until 2012.

The only country in the EU that ignores that EAW is Ireland, although it seems that their decision is based on a linguistic technicality, and Ireland agrees, too, that he did commit the crime. Ireland did not question the 3-year sentence that was passed by the Hungarian Courts.

This means if Ciaran Tobin sets foot anywhere in the European Union outside of Ireland, and all other countries, for that matter, that respect EU law, he must be arrested for causing the deaths of Marci and Petra Zoltai.
