Liaison Prosecutors (LPs) come from countries outside the EU and are posted at Eurojust based on the international agreement with the respective country. They work side by side with their colleagues from Member States to provide support in cross-border investigations involving their country. In the interest of facilitating judicial cooperation between Eurojust and the third country, LPs have access to Eurojust’s operational tools and facilities, including the use of office space and secure telecommunications services.
The mandate and duration of each posting are determined by the national authorities of the third countries. Eight third countries have seconded LPs to Eurojust: Georgia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, Ukraine and the United States of America.
LPs and their assistants may also participate in operational and strategic meetings, at the invitation of the President of the College and with the approval of the National Members concerned. National Members, their deputies and assistants, and Eurojust staff may also attend meetings organised by the LP or other competent authorities from the involved country.
