Strategy of the EU Genocide Network to combat impunity for the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes within the European Union and its Member States( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Union (EU) has expressed its commitment to ensuring consistency and coherence of its external and internal policies in the fight against impunity for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes ('core international crimes'). Within its Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) policy, the EU seeks to support national authorities in the Member States in their investigation and prosecution of these crimes to ensure that the EU does not become a safe haven for perpetrators. As part of this commitment, in 2002, the Council of the EU (the 'Council') adopted Council Decision 2002/494/JHA on the establishment of a 'European Network of contact points in respect of persons responsible for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes' (the 'Genocide Network' or the 'Network'). The Genocide Network meets twice per year and brings together prosecutors, police investigators and other experts ('contact points') from all Member States. In 2003, the Council adopted Council Decision 2003/335/JHA, designed to increase cooperation between police and prosecution services, thereby maximising the ability of criminal justice authorities in different Member States to cooperate effectively in the investigation and prosecution of alleged perpetrators of core international crimes. The Network fosters the implementation of this Decision by facilitating the exchange of information amongst practitioners, encouraging cooperation between national authorities in different Member States and providing a forum for sharing best practice. Since 2011, the Genocide Network is supported in its work through the Secretariat based in The Hague with Eurojust

Report of Eurojust's casework experience in the field of prevention and resolution of conflicts of jurisdiction( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report concerns Eurojust{u2019}s experience in the field of the prevention and resolution of conflicts of jurisdiction, in particular, in the period from 2009 to 2014. The report is based on Eurojust{u2019}s casework, seminars organised or co-organised by Eurojust and contributions made by Eurojust. The report also reflects the outcome of interviews conducted by the University of Luxembourg with several national desks in February 2015 as well as the College Thematic Discussion on Conflicts of Jurisdiction that took place in March 2015. The report starts by recalling the main legal provisions on conflicts of jurisdiction (infra I) and then addresses Eurojust{u2019}s casework in the field of prevention and resolution of conflicts of jurisdiction from four different angles: the identification and coordination of parallel proceedings (infra II); the criteria and decisions on which jurisdiction should prosecute (infra III); the transfer of proceedings (infra IV) and issues related to the application of the principle of ne bis in idem (infra V)
New psychoactive substances in Europe : legislation and prosecution : current challenges and solutions( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With nearly 300 new psychoactive substances (NPS) reported to the EU’s early warning system in the 2013-2015 period, the evolution of the European market for NPS has accelerated to a speed that the public authorities’ established response - drug control laws - has struggled to match. Varying legal responses have been introduced in different countries, whether: by using existing laws that focused on consumer or health protection or medicinal products; by modifying drug laws to introduce group definitions of substances under control; or by developing innovative new legislation. Use of medicinal product laws - which are based on an EU directive - was challenged in the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which ruled in 2014 that substances are not medicinal products if they do not have beneficial effects on human health. As a result, Eurojust and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) were called upon to consider challenges for judicial cooperation and explore creative solutions to address the problems related to the prosecution of non-controlled NPS. The first part of this joint report is aimed at policymakers. It lists four challenges in NPS control, and then describes the different legislative solutions used in many of the Member States. Focusing on the innovative new laws that are designed to address the issue, the report gives the reader a breakdown of their key elements: the criteria used to define NPS; the systems for listing them; and the penalties for non-compliance. The second part of the report is aimed at legal practitioners. It outlines the NPS judgment of the CJEU and its practical effects on transnational prosecution of NPS cases, and describes the responses of some of the Member States most affected by the ruling. Combining the top-level monitoring activities of the EMCDDA with the operational experience of Eurojust in transnational prosecutions, this joint report aims to provide succinct but useful information to the key actors in this area
Strategic project on environmental crime : report( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental crime is a serious crime, often committed by organised crime groups, that affects society as a whole, as its impact is felt not only in the health of humans and animals but also in the quality of air, soil and water. The EU Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment 2013 (SOCTA) identified environmental crime as a specific emerging threat that requires intensified monitoring. Environmental crime also often involves a cross-border dimension, and the increase of international trade and the abolition of border controls within the Schengen area add to the scope of the problem. Despite the potentially grave consequences of environmental crime, particularly in the areas of illegal trafficking of waste and trafficking of endangered species, its seriousness is still often underestimated at national and international level. In this context, Eurojust took the initiative in 2013 to launch the {u2018}Strategic Project on Environmental Crime{u2019}. The goal of this report is to summarise the findings of the Strategic Project. It highlights the main problems encountered by the national authorities in prosecuting environmental crime and attempts to present suggestions for addressing some difficulties, particularly those linked to cross-border cooperation. Another goal of this report is to raise awareness among practitioners, policy makers and legislators of the necessity to improve cooperation within the European Union and internationally in this important area

Operation Vertigo a closer look( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A typical cross-border fraud case would tend to follow logical geographical lines and could, for example, focus on a particular language group. Operation {u2018}Vertigo{u2019} did not follow a usual pattern. Its sheer scale and complexity made it exceptional. In this carousel fraud case, the OCG behind the criminal activity used a sophisticated infrastructure (buffer companies, missing traders, companies functioning as {u2018}alternative payment platforms{u2019} to facilitate money laundering and crime-related money transfers) spread over various Member States and a number of third States, defrauding EU citizens of approximately EUR 320 million in tax revenues. Several coordination meetings, initiated by the German Desk at Eurojust, took place at Eurojust between November 2013 and October 2015. The Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and the Netherlands established a JIT, partly funded by Eurojust. Eurojust and Europol demonstrated strong collaboration from the early stages of the investigation. Europol provided extensive analytical support and intelligence sharing
Operation Blackshades an evaluation( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

BlackShades was an organisation developing and selling malicious software (malware) that enabled buyers to infect computers and remotely take over and control the operations of the infected computers, and perform distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) cyber-attacks, among other things. An FBI investigation revealed links to several Member States. An example from the Netherlands of how the malware could be used for criminal purposes was that of an 18-year-old man who infected at least 2 000 computers, controlling the victims{u2019} webcams to take pictures of women and girls
European Judicial Network report on activities and management : 2013 - 14( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This Report on the activities and management of the European Judicial Network reflects the implementation of the EJN Work Programmes and the activities carried out by the EJN Contact Points during the years 2013 and 2014. This Report focuses on the core functions of the EJN Contact Points and the administration of the EJN by the EJN Secretariat. This Report is the third report presented by the EJN after the entry into force of Council Decision 2008/976/JHA on the European Judicial Network, which requires the EJN to present a report to the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission every two year. As in the previous issues, this Report explains the volume and diversity of work performed by the EJN Contact Points, as active intermediaries in facilitating judicial cooperation in criminal matters between the EU Member States and in relation with third countries. The number of requests for assistance dealt with by the EJN Contact Points has continued to grow, compared to the previous reporting period. Thus, in 2013-14, the EJN Contact Points have assisted their national judicial authorities or foreign judicial authorities in more than 20 000 cases. This Report also shows that the EJN website has continued to play an important role. A significant number of visitors have used the e-tools available on the EJN{u2019}s platform, especially the Judicial Atlas and the Judicial Library. The EJN Secretariat has worked on improving the EJN electronic tools and, at the end of 2014, the new comprehensive Judicial Atlas was technically finalised. During the covered period, the EJN has intensified its cooperation with partners, with particular attention being paid to the strengthening of cooperation with similar judicial operational networks in criminal matters. In 2013-14, the EJN Secretariat collaborated closely with the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union and with the European Commission. This Report also reflects the main results of the EJN meetings held during this two-year period and contains proposals to improve the legal and institutional framework on international judicial cooperation in criminal matters within the European Union

Notifications to Eurojust of breaches of time limits in the execution of European arrest warrants (Article 17(7) (first sentence) of FD on EAW)( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Eurojust is pleased to provide a note on notifications to Eurojust of breaches of time limits in the execution of European Arrest Warrants (EAWs) pursuant to Article 17(7) (first sentence) of the Framework Decision 2002/584/JHA of 13 June 2002 on the European Arrest Warrant (FD EAW), on the basis of the experience of its National Desks in relation to the reporting of such breaches by national authorities. The purpose of this note is to raise awareness of the services that Eurojust can provide at operational and strategic level further to the compliance by Member States of their obligation to inform Eurojust of breaches of time limits in the execution of EAWs and the reasons therefor pursuant to Article 17(7) (first sentence) of FD EAW. Article 17(7) of FD EAW provides that ?Where in exceptional circumstances a Member State cannot observe the time limits provided for in this article [decision to execute the EAW], it shall inform Eurojust giving the reasons for the delay. In addition, a Member State which has experienced repeated delays on the part of another Member State in the execution of EAWs shall inform the Council with a view to evaluating the implementation of this Framework Decision at Member State level.? [emphasis added] The focus of this note lies on Article 17(7) (first sentence) of FD EAW, as it is this part of the provision that concerns the role of Eurojust, and aims at (i) presenting Eurojust{u2019}s role when informed of breaches of time limits in the execution of EAWs with a view to assisting in the reduction of the delays and contributing to the smooth operation of EAW proceedings, (ii) raising awareness in the Member States of their reporting obligation towards Eurojust, pursuant to Article 17(7) (first sentence) of FD EAW, and (iii) presenting the main issues identified at Eurojust concerning notifications of such breaches on the basis of its limited experience due to very reduced number of such notifications received thus far
Implementation of the Eurojust action plan against THB 2012-2016 final evaluation report( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The nature of Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) cases present inherent difficulties for investigations and prosecutions. Most of these obstacles were identified in the mid-term report on the implementation of the Eurojust Action Plan against THB and are confirmed by this report. Indeed, THB investigations are complex, involve increasingly well organized groups, target vulnerable victims and generate profits that are hard to track and to confiscate. Eurojust casework reveals a better understanding of THB specifics by practitioners, a higher level of coordination which, in turn, translates to a larger number of Joint Investigation Teams being set up, as 75 % of the analysed THB cases with a coordination meeting at Eurojust in 2014/2015 translated into a JIT. In addition, the higher percentage of coordination meetings, organised by Eurojust with the competent national authorities in THB cases can be regarded as an indicator of the willingness and availability of national authorities to cooperate on a higher level, with the assistance of Eurojust, in order to meet the challenges induced by the complexity of THB cases. It is noteworthy that, in a general context of scarce resources, the allocation of significant financial means to set up JITs and agree on other facilitation tools indicates that the cases brought to Eurojust were assessed as deserving Eurojust{u2019}s financial and operational assistance. Finally, an important milestone has been reached with the setting up of the first two JITs in THB cases between an EU Member State and a third State. In terms of methodology, the Evaluation highlights challenges related to the reliability of the data made available. The report shows that beyond the mere exercise of evaluating the Eurojust Action Plan, reliable and complete data are key to designing and promoting a tailor made, informed and accurate policy response to THB. In this respect, Article 13 notification feeds the process of collecting and analyzing relevant information. Such information is essential to identifying potential links to other cases registered at Eurojust and more generally triggers Eurojust{u2019}s further support where and when appropriate. THB calls for more cooperation at the EU level to ensure a coordinated holistic repressive approach to circumvent the procedural, practical and legal obstacles that may arise, and particularly the difficulty of gathering solid and admissible evidence. The Agency remains therefore committed to continuing supporting practitioners through JITs and other relevant means, and further disseminating its experience and knowledge as an integral part of this facilitating role. Eurojust{u2019}s added value in this respect was underlined by practitioners as pivotal in facilitating judicial cooperation to fight the increasingly complex crime type that is THB
