In 2013, Eurojust’s casework showed an increase, particularly in relation to cases involving drug trafficking, trafficking in human beings, fraud, corruption, money laundering, criminal offences affecting the EU’s financial interests, and (mobile) organised crime groups. In addition to tackling the EU crime priorities, Eurojust is driven to respond to requests coming from national authorities as well as to new crime phenomena, and to further provide its contributions to EU institutions when reviewing the appropriate legal and policy frameworks.
In addition to the Terrorism Convictions Monitor, this year we launched the Maritime Piracy Judicial Monitor. Both publications serve as information sources for practitioners. The three issues of Eurojust News published on the Eurojust website in 2013 were dedicated to The European Public Prosecutor’s Office, Joint investigation teams, and Environmental crime. These newsletters provide information on legal framework, policy context, expert contributions and Eurojust’s role in specific thematic areas.
