Question reference: E-002383/2019

The Council does not comment on media reports. The legal framework regarding police cooperation in the EU is governed by Title V of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), with Europol having a prominent role.

More broadly, neither the Treaty on European Union (TEU), the TFEU nor the Europol Regulation(1) govern the internal organisation of a Member State’s law enforcement or national security architecture, which are strictly national competences.

The Europol Regulation was adopted jointly by the European Parliament and the Council and leaves it to the individual Member States to decide which authorities are involved in the cooperation and exchange of information with Europol.

Consequently, it is not for the Council to take a position on the abovementioned issues with respect to the Spanish Government.
