Conference : Creating an Area of Criminal Justice in the European Union : Beyond the legal texts

Yesterday a conference took place in Paris to discuss the topic "Creating an Area of Criminal Justice in the European Union : Beyond the legal texts"

The organisator was The European Judges and Prosecutors Association (EJPA) , that aims at :
- gathering together judges, prosecutors and citizens from the European Union and from countries who have applied to EU membership, interested in matters of judicial cooperation ;
- improving the mutual knowledge of our judiciary systems.

Judges and prosecutors from eleven European countries discussed in Paris what is to be done to turn theory into practice. How to move beyond the legal texts towards a culture of systematic cooperation between national judicial authorities in the EU?

Luc Frieden, who is Minister of Justice in Luxembourg, opened the conference. Despite weaknesses in Luxembourg because in many cases negligence has replaced pragmatism he is willing to build an efficient legal and regulatory framework even though professionals may repudiate the will (Cf. the draft law to transpose the second directive and reactions to remove from the text sensitive provisions)
