Following the priorities set by the Council, Eurojust focused on the fight against terrorism, drug trafficking, trafficking in human beings, fraud, corruption, cybercrime, money laundering and other activities related to the presence of organised crime groups in the economy.

The number of cases referred to Eurojust by the Member States increased by 15 per cent over 2008 to 1,372 cases in 2009.

Eurojust held 131 co-ordination meetings in 2009 with the participation of judges, prosecutors and investigators from the Member States. Of these co-ordination meetings, 16 were held outside Eurojust for operational reasons. Two-thirds of the co-ordination meetings involved three or more countries.
