With the aid of Eurojust, terrorists are captured, human traffickers are arrested and cybercrime is limited. These are just a few of the successes of the organisation that seeks to bring criminals to justice faster and more efficiently.
Eurojust was established in 2002 with the goal of promoting the efficiency of the national investigating authorities and prosecution services in matters involving serious cross-border organised crime within the European Union.
By supporting and strengthening coordination and cooperation between national authorities, Eurojust ensures that criminals are brought to justice faster and more efficiently.
Thanks to Eurojust, the national authorities can exchange information more easily, offer reciprocal legal assistance and extradite people for questioning.
Each Member State designates a national representative. These are experienced public prosecutors, judges or police officers, assisted by deputies, assistants and national experts – who in turn are supported by a staff of more than 250 employees. In 2017, Eurojust handled 2 550 cases of serious cross-border organised crime.
