EU Agrees New Rules for a more Efficient and Effective Eurojust
On 20 June 2018, EU ambassadors confirmed an agreement reached on 19 June between the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council and the Parliament on rules amending the regulation on Eurojust, the European Union agency for criminal justice cooperation. The regulation establishes a new governance model with the aim of improving the operational effectiveness of the agency.
The revision of the Eurojust regulation also takes into account the establishment of the European public prosecutor's office (EPPO) as well as the new rules on data protection for the Union institutions and bodies agreed by the Council and the Parliament last month.
"Eurojust is key to ensuring that we respond effectively to the challenge of cross-border organised crime such as terrorism, illegal immigrant smuggling or cybercrime. With this reform, Eurojust will be more efficient and able to enhance criminal justice cooperation between member states."
Tsetska Tsacheva, Bulgarian Minister of Justice
