Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've tried to explain my thoughts regarding this in other comments to this essay

When you quote these earlier positions, does that mean that your views haven't changed even after the "tireless efforts of DoDo and Migeru to help explain what is going on"?

And while this is done to defend a state's citizens against "dead laws"

No dead laws clause was involved in the Darkazanli case... that was an explanation I gave to a clause you quoted. What was involved apparently was the mandatory non-execution of the EAW clause, with the double jeopardy sub-clause being my obvious guess.

where one state will normally extradite a wanted person to another state.

As I quoted Wikipedia upthread, in the USA, too, double jeopardy may apply even if a case is closed against someone before it even gets to trial in one state.

I'm sorry DoDo, I had missed your Wikipedia link about dismissal due to lack of evidence and double jeopardy. I withdraw my statements regarding the Darkazanli case and German obstruction of justice.
