If the EU does not ensure that these murderers are returned to Mallorca to face trial, then what is the point of the EU?

Freedom to travel across borders must also include freedom of the authorities to enforce the law across borders, using as much force as is necessary.

Justice for the murdered man demands that his killers face the law of the country where he was killed.

These thugs must be returned to Mallorca to face questions and justice. Anything less is a dereliction of duty to law and order, not to mention the family of the murdered deceased
