Reference for a preliminary ruling from the Supreme Court (Ireland) made on 2 March 2022 — Criminal proceedings against OE

Should Article 27 of the Framework Decision (1) be interpreted as meaning that a decision to surrender a person creates a legal relationship between him, the executing State and the requesting State such that any issue taken to have been finally determined in that decision must also be taken to have been determined for the purposes of the procedure for obtaining consent to further prosecution or punishment for other offences?
If the answer to Question 1 is that Article 27 does not require that interpretation, does a national procedural rule breach the principle of effectiveness if it operates so as to prevent the person concerned from relying, in the context of the consent application, upon a relevant judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union delivered in the period of time after the order for surrender?
