As part of the European Judicial Training Network’s (EJTN) 2014 Criminal Justice Project I, the Judicial Academy of the Slovak Republic, located in Omšenie, was the venue for the EJTN’s yearly seminar (24 – 26 November), entitled International Judicial Cooperation in Criminal Matters in Practice: EAW and MLA simulations.
Eurojust was represented by its two Vice-Presidents, Francisco Jiménez-Villarejo and Ladislav Hamran. Their role was to support, from the perspective of Eurojust National Members, a two-day simulation of the life cycle of an investigation, including execution of EAWs and mutual legal assistance. The methodology used was ‘learn by doing’. Messrs Jiménez-Villarejo and Hamran gave a presentation on the second day entitled European actors and the effectiveness of the European Arrest Warrant: the role of Eurojust in judicial cooperation in criminal matters. Case examples were given on money laundering and resolution of conflicts of jurisdiction.
Located in Brussels and founded in 2000, the EJTN is the principal platform and promoter for the development, training and exchange of knowledge and competence of the EU judiciary. The EJTN develops training standards and curriculum, coordinates judicial training exchanges and programmes and fosters cooperation between EU national training bodies.
