Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Cornelia Ernst
 Subject: Closer cooperation between Europol and intelligence services

The Europol police agency is working more and more closely with Member States’ intelligence services via the Counter-Terrorism Group (CTG). The CTG is part of the ‘Club de Berne’, an informal association of European intelligence services. Europol and the CTG hold joint workshops ‘on key counter-terrorism issues’, and there have been, as described in the answer to question for written answer E-004496/2019, several ‘mutual visits’. The Commission must provide details of the facilities and bodies involved.

1. What joint workshops have Europol and the intelligence-service-based CTG and/or their individual members held ‘on key counter-terrorism issues’? What topics were dealt with at the workshops?

2. What facilities or bodies of the intelligence-service-based CTG have been visited by Europol ‘with the aim of boosting knowledge on both sides’? What visits by the CTG to EU Justice and Home Affairs bodies have taken place?

3. How is the Commission implementing the need for ‘closer cooperation’ between the police and the intelligence services referred to in question for written answer E-002517/2019?
