Lib Dem Shadow Home Secretary Chris Huhne yesterday penned a piece for The Independent setting out his views on the use of a European Arrest Warrant to detain the extremist Frederick Toben for prosecution in Germany for holocaust denial.

We restrict that freedom at our peril and only in extreme circumstances (such as incitement to racial hatred and violence).
