European Police in a major cross border offensive against corruption



Efforts are underway to combat cross-border economic crimes throughout the EU countries. The authorities wish that economic crimes related to fraud, bribery and corruption must be fought with new and common investigation teams within the Europol.

The new task force has an agenda to bring an end to long response times and cumbersome bureaucratic detours, when cases of economic crimes are investigated across national borders.

Therefore, the EU Public Prosecutors for Serious Economic Crimes, colloquially also called The Financial intelligence in some countries, has for the first time created a genuine joint investigation team of police force with foreign colleagues within the EU community.

The new police weapons that have so far only been already been applied in cases such as women trafficking and drug smuggling will be established as a permanent structure. Now after three years of exploration the deliberations have resulted in an international case concerning bribery and fraud.

Under the auspices of the European Public Prosecutor for Serious Economic Crime, the teams will focus on cross border collaboration to more freely share intelligence and information without having to send requests for assistance through the normal cumbersome system.
