PPO Hamburg and the special police unit ‘Black Block’ have been conducting investigations into a number of suspects allegedly involved in the G20 riots that occurred in July 2017 in Hamburg, especially in the Elbchaussee and the Sternschanze district. Eurojust supported the national judicial and law enforcement authorities from the beginning of the investigations by facilitating the cooperation.
On 29 May 2018, led by the German Desk, a coordination centre was set up at Eurojust’s premises to coordinate several house searches in Spain, France, Italy and Switzerland. Eurojust contributed to the success of this multinational action day by providing logistical and operational support to the countries involved.
