Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions at the Crown Prosecution Service of the UK, met today in The Hague with Ladislav Hamran, President of Eurojust.
The UK is a key strategic partner for Eurojust. Since 2014, the UK has been involved in approximately one of every six criminal investigation cases per year, which we were called upon to support. We do not expect serious, organised crime to decrease in the future and as prosecutors, we remain convinced that judicial cooperation will continue to play a very important role in making Europe safer, said Mr Hamran.
Ms Saunders said: We know serious organised crime frequently transcends European borders. It is vital that the UK continues to work with Eurojust which has been so important in facilitating judicial cooperation, allowing us to successfully prosecute many cases. We are committed to strengthening our partnerships across Europe as we work together to prosecute crime.
