Agreement Europol Denmark

Posted by Admin on Dec 1, 2020 in Uncategorized |

Denmark has not been a member of the EU`s law enforcement service Europol since yesterday (1 May), but it will continue to have access to its databases thanks to an eleventh-hour agreement. “This regime would depend on Denmark`s continued accession to the European Union and the Schengen area, Denmark`s obligation to fully transpose the 2016/680/EU Directive on Data Protection in Police Cases into Danish law by 1 May 2017, and Denmark`s agreement on the application of the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and the competence of the European Data Protection Supervisor,” the statements said. Denmark, an EU member, voted in a referendum last year to make it no longer disconnect from the bloc`s judicial rules on the bloc`s judicial rules, meaning the country will need a separate agreement to access Europol information when new EU rules come into force next May. The agreement provides for a rapid, safe and effective exchange of information and evidence in the context of business between Denmark, other EU Member States and third countries and provides for comprehensive and robust data protection rules to ensure the same level of data protection that is respected throughout the European Union. As part of the agreement, Denmark will have observer status at Eurojust College meetings and the ability to set up a full office. In addition, in its new role within Eurojust, Denmark will be subject to the democratic control of its national parliament, will be bound by the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and the European Data Protection Supervisor and will make a financial contribution to Eurojust`s budget. The agreement between Denmark and Eurojust takes into account the situation of the country, which is both a Member State and not a member of Eurojust, in accordance with the Eurojust Regulation, which will come into force in December 2019. The agreement will ensure continuity in the 76 ongoing Eurojust cases, with Denmark`s participation for 2019, as well as future business after the Danish national desk`s existence within Eurojust has been discontinued. Denmark will maintain access to Eurojust`s information systems and provide personal data through investigations and criminal prosecutions through its seconded representative, deputy or assistant. Mr Hamran said: “We welcome the signing of today`s agreement with Denmark, a Member State that has made an invaluable contribution to the fight against organised crime in Europe and which has much more to offer in this regard in the future. This agreement allows Eurojust and Denmark to continue their fruitful cooperation under the Eurojust Regulation. We will work together on current and imminent cross-border issues to end cross-border crime and create a safer continent for all Europeans.

The agreement was presented last year by the European Commission. Rasmussen had called it a “back door” at Europol after the Danes “threw” the keys to the main door. A criminal justice cooperation agreement was signed today in Luxembourg between Eurojust, the EU Judicial Cooperation Unit, and the Kingdom of Denmark, to continue their joint fight against transnational organised crime after the approval of the European Council. The agreement allows for transnational operational and strategic cooperation under the new Eurojust Regulation, as it allows Denmark to appoint a representative to Eurojust to coordinate its criminal investigations and prosecutions with other Member States as well as with third countries that have entered into a cooperation agreement with Eurojust.
