Article 13 of the revised Eurojust Decision (see Council Decision 2009/426/JHA) provides a general obligation for Member States to exchange with Eurojust “any information necessary for the performance of its tasks”. These tasks are to improve coordination and cooperation between investigating and prosecuting authorities in the Member States, and to provide support to them generally. The information will allow Eurojust to cross-check for links to cases in the Eurojust Case Management System, to offer assistance to Member States at an early stage, and to provide operational and strategic feedback to national authorities.
The obligation to transmit information applies from 04 June 2011 and specifically includes information about:
- Joint Investigation Teams;
- Cross border cases of particular gravity; and
- Cases involving (potential) conflicts of jurisdiction, controlled deliveries, repeated problems in judicial cooperation.
To facilitate a structured transmission of information, Eurojust has prepared a form for competent national authorities. Please contact your National Desk at Eurojust for advice.
