On 6 August 2020, AG Bobek delivered his opinion in case C‑195/20 PPU, which concludes as follows:

"The specialty rule referred to in Article 27(2) of Council Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA of 13 June 2002 on the European arrest warrant and the surrender procedures between Member States, as amended by Council Framework Decision 2009/299/JHA of 26 February 2009, does not preclude a measure involving deprivation of liberty for an offence committed prior to the first surrender other than that on which that surrender is based, in the case where the person referred to in the first European arrest warrant has voluntarily left the territory of the issuing Member State, provided that the authorities executing the second European arrest warrant issued after that departure have given their consent, in connection with that second warrant, to an extension of the prosecution to the offence which gave rise to the measure involving deprivation of liberty at issue in the main proceedings."
