Eurojust’s Executive Board has six members: it is chaired by the President of Eurojust and comprises the Vice-Presidents of Eurojust as well as a representative of the European Commission. Two other members of the College are also members of the Executive Board under a two-year rotation system.
The current members of the Executive Board are:
- Ladislav Hamran, President of Eurojust
- Klaus Meyer-Cabri, Vice-President of Eurojust
- Filippo Spiezia, Vice-President of Eurojust
- Olivier Lenert, National Member for Luxembourg
- Solveig Wollstad, National Member for Sweden
- Alexandra Jour-Schroeder, Commission representative.
Responsibilities of the Executive Board
The Executive Board assists the Eurojust College in its management functions, but is not involved in the operational functions of Eurojust. It oversees the necessary preparatory work of the Administrative Director on administrative matters for adoption by the College and takes administrative decisions when explicitly provided for in the Eurojust Regulation.
The Executive Board is in charge of:
- adopting an anti-fraud strategy for Eurojust, based on a draft prepared by the Administrative Director;
- reviewing Eurojust’s programming document, draft annual budget and draft annual report on Eurojust’s activities, and forwarding them to the College for adoption;
- adopting implementing rules to the Staff Regulations of Officials of the European Union and the Conditions of Employment of Other Servants of the European Union;
- ensuring adequate follow-up to the findings and recommendations of internal or external audit reports, evaluations and investigations;
- making decisions on the establishment and, where necessary, modification of Eurojust’s internal administrative structures;
- assisting and advising the Eurojust Administrative Director on the implementation of the College’s decisions, to reinforce supervision of administrative and budgetary management;
- adopting the financial rules applicable to Eurojust;
- appointing an Accounting Officer and a Data Protection Officer at Eurojust; and
- undertaking any additional administrative tasks assigned to it by the College.
Board meetings and voting rights
The members of the Board meet at least once a month, though meetings may also take place more frequently at the initiative of its chairperson, at the request of the European Commission, or at the request of at least two of its other members. During meetings, the Executive Board makes decisions by a majority of its members. Each member has one vote, with the Eurojust President placing the casting vote in the event of a tie.
Eurojust’s Administrative Director also attends the meetings of the Executive Board without voting rights. The European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) may also participate, without the right to vote, in meetings that are of relevance to its functioning.
