The European Judicial Network (EJN) recently welcomed the arrival of its new Secretary, Mr Ola Löfgren.
Mr Löfgren, an experienced prosecutor, comes from the Swedish Prosecution Authority, where he has served for many years, including as Head of the International Unit. He was also the first Deputy National Member of Eurojust’s Swedish Desk, between 2002 and 2005, and has considerable experience of EJN matters.
The EJN is a network of national contact points for the facilitation of judicial cooperation in criminal matters. The network was created by Joint Action 98/428 JHA of 29 June 1998, and is composed of contact points of the Member States, as well as of the European Commission and of a Secretariat, which is located at the premises of Eurojust. From 24 December 2008, Joint Action 98/428 was replaced by Council Decision 2008/976/JHA of 16 December 2008 (the EJN Decision). The EJN Secretariat is responsible for the administration of the EJN, including the dissemination of relevant information to the EJN contact points and competent judicial authorities as defined in Article 7 of the EJN Decision. As indicated in Article 25a(b) of the Eurojust Decision, the EJN Secretariat forms part of the staff of Eurojust and functions as a separate Unit.
