"Mr President-in-Office of the Council, thank you for your answer, but, with all due respect, I would like to ask you the question once again. We are all aware that the necessary cooperation between democracies, and therefore between the European Union and the United States, in the fight against terrorism, is taking place, but this cannot act as an obstacle to the European Union’s vigorously defending the application of its inherent values: in this case, its defence of the abolition of the death penalty. Regrettably, in the United States, as we all know, the death penalty is still in force. We are also aware that the Convention will deal with the integration of the Charter of Fundamental Rights into the future European Constitution, but the Charter was also proclaimed by the Nice European Council and I believe that a proclamation is politically binding on those who proclaim it. In these terms, Mr President-in-Office, and taking up the reference you made to the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, I ask you: will the European Union extradite any person accused of serious crimes, including terrorism, if there is a possibility that they would be condemned to death or executed in the United States?"@en1
