Question for written answer E-003019-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Dimitrios Papadimoulis (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Function and objectives of the European Public Prosecutor's Office

In recent statements, Vera Jourová, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, indicated that the European Prosecutor's Office (EPPO) would be fully established by the end of 2020.

In this context, Laura Codruţa Kövesi was appointed a few days ago as head of the EPPO for a period of seven years.

Replying to a question I had asked at the end of 2017 about the EPPO's mandate to tackle financial crime and cross-border fraud in the EU that cost tens of billions of euros annually, Commissioner Jourová replied: ‘The EPPO will adopt internal rules of procedure, which may also include rules applying to whistle blowers.’

Will the Commission say:
1. What guidance is it providing regarding the EPPO's rules of procedure, and in particular its cooperation with whistle blowers?
2. Since the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Hungary, Malta and the Netherlands had initially refused to cooperate with the EPPO, what specific measures would ensure cooperation with a view to effectively combating financial crime in the EU?
3. What is the amount of EPPO's budget and according to which priorities will it be allocated?
