Question for written answer E-004362-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Agustín Díaz de Mera García Consuegra (PPE)

 Subject:  European Public Prosecutor's Office
 Answer in writing 

Article 86(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) laid down the possibility of creating a European Public Prosecutor’s Office. The European public prosecution body would initially investigate fraud and speculation against the euro, and might subsequently also carry out investigations and bring criminal proceedings in relation to cross-border crimes such as trafficking in human beings, drug trafficking or terrorism.

As a result of the growing number of crimes and the links between different organised crime groups in Europe, we must focus once again on the importance of combating serious cross-border crime by setting up a European Public Prosecutor’s Office. Although the article cited does not constitute a mandate or a duty but an instrument laid down in the TFEU, could the Commission indicate if it is planning to establish a European Public Prosecutor’s Office?
