From 2021 the judiciary, prosecutorial services, legal practitioners, and law enforcement officials of the Member States have been working with the European Public Prosecutor’s Office in tackling large-scale, cross-border crimes against the EU budget. Understanding the competencies of the EPPO and how it may affect national criminal procedure and law is one of the key challenges for the community of legal professionals in the EU.
Based on Regulation (EU) 2017/1939, the EPPO is a vital asset for the handling of criminal investigations and prosecutions related to crimes against the EU’s financial interest.
The course provides a practice-oriented introduction to the working structures and functions of the EPPO and explains how it will collect evidence, investigate, and conduct prosecutions in cooperation with national authorities in winding up crimes against the EU’s financial interest.
The objective of the course is to make legal practitioners ready to work with the EPPO by explaining what competencies and procedures the EPPO has at its disposal and how national law complements those.
