President of Eurojust to give speech to College of Europe

09/10/2014

On 13 October, as part of the Falcone - Borsellino Series, the President of Eurojust, Ms Michèle Coninsx, will give a speech at the Bruges campus of the College of Europe, entitled Eurojust: an added value in the fight against organised crime and terrorism.

Eurojust combats a number of serious cross-border crimes, including terrorism, cybercrime, drug trafficking, trafficking in human beings, counterfeiting, money laundering, online child abuse, crime against property or public goods including fraud and corruption, criminal offences affecting the EU’s financial interests, environmental crime and participation in a criminal organization.

Eurojust combats these crimes through the coordination of cross-border investigations and prosecutions in partnership with judges, prosecutors and investigators from Member States, helping to resolve conflicts of jurisdiction. Eurojust also facilitates the execution of EU legal instruments designed to improve cross-border criminal justice, such as the European Arrest Warrant, and requests Member States to take certain actions, such as setting up joint investigation teams, or recommending that one Member State is better placed than another to investigate or prosecute.
