Towards a European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO)

17-11-2016

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee, analyses the proposal for a Regulation establishing the EPPO. The evolution of the text is analysed through a comparison between the initial Commission proposal and the current version of the text (dated of 28 October 2016).

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee, analyses the proposal for a Regulation establishing the EPPO. The evolution of the text is analysed through a comparison between the initial Commission proposal and the current version of the text (dated of 28 October 2016). The paper assesses whether the EPPO, as it is currently envisaged, would fit the objectives assigned to it, whether it will have some added value, and whether it will be able to function efficiently and in full respect of fundamental rights. It focuses on the main issues at stake and controversial points of discussion, namely the EPPO institutional design, some material issues, its procedural framework, and its relations with its partners.

This Research Paper examines the costs of non-Europe in the field of organised crime. It provides an interdisciplinary analysis of the main legal/ethical, socio-political and economic costs and benefits of the EU in policies on organised crime. It offers an in-depth examination of the transformative contribution that the EU has made, in terms of investigation, prosecution and efficiency, to trans-border operational activities and the protection of its citizens’ rights. Finally, it seeks to answer the questions of what are the costs and benefits of European cooperation and what forms of cooperation would bring more European added value.

US law enforcement in the fight against organised crime

22-04-2013

The United States has a long history of dealing with organised crime. Specific federal laws have been adopted and a number of government agencies set up to tackle various aspects of such criminal activities. Federal law enforcement agencies have played an important role in dealing with organised crime and drug-trafficking organisations, with drugs addressed separately to some extent. The Department of Justice and its two component agencies (the FBI and the DEA) are the main bodies involved, although ...

The United States has a long history of dealing with organised crime. Specific federal laws have been adopted and a number of government agencies set up to tackle various aspects of such criminal activities. Federal law enforcement agencies have played an important role in dealing with organised crime and drug-trafficking organisations, with drugs addressed separately to some extent. The Department of Justice and its two component agencies (the FBI and the DEA) are the main bodies involved, although they often coordinate their efforts with those of other agencies. Sizeable numbers of staff of the Departments of Homeland Security, the Treasury and State are also responsible for tracking criminal activities within their respective areas of activity.

Witness protection programmes. EU experiences in the international context

28-01-2013

Witness testimony has critical value in investigating and prosecuting crime. For this reason many witnesses – in particular those who testify against organised crime – are intimidated and threatened. The state responds to this by granting witnesses various forms of protection. It sometimes goes as far as to relocate witnesses and give them new identity through participation in witness protection programmes.

Italian legislation on organised crime, corruption and money laundering

11-10-2012

Italy is the location of one of five criminal hubs in the EU, according to Europol.

Key elements of Italian law in this field are outlined below.

EU response to the US terrorist finance tracking programme

28-04-2011

For the United States, the Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme is an essential element of its counter-terrorism policy. It relies on 'data sets' obtained under subpoena from the SWIFT worldwide messaging system, allowing it to track financial transactions from across the world, and initially including Europe.  In 2009, SWIFT moved its European transaction data to Europe, forcing the US to negotiate with European governments for continued access to the data. The move also coincided with the increase ...

For the United States, the Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme is an essential element of its counter-terrorism policy. It relies on 'data sets' obtained under subpoena from the SWIFT worldwide messaging system, allowing it to track financial transactions from across the world, and initially including Europe.  In 2009, SWIFT moved its European transaction data to Europe, forcing the US to negotiate with European governments for continued access to the data. The move also coincided with the increase in the power of the European Parliament under the Lisbon Treaty. An interim agreement, supported by the Council and Commission, was rejected by the EP on the grounds that it failed to correctly balance security and civil liberties.  The EU-US Financial Messaging Data Agree­ment was finally signed in June 2010, following further negotiations with the US, and including additional data protection provisions in comparison to the rejected text.  Two reports on the first six months of the new agreement have, however, placed doubts on the new data protection safeguards. In particular a report on Europol's role has raised serious concerns from a number of MEPs. Europol has, in turn, strongly defended its own performance.  

Europol : linking law enforcement across Europe

27-04-2011

Europol's competencies have grown remarka­bly since it was created and now include combating organised crime, terrorism and numerous forms of serious crime. Although the Lisbon Treaty precludes the use of coercive measures by Europol, it is argued that the Office has already acquired some executive powers.
