Justice and Home Affairs Council: extracts from the joint press conference by Rachida Dati, French Minister for Justice and President in office of the Council, Jacques Barrot and José Luís Lopes da Mota, President of Eurojust

37 views

The EU Ministers for Justice reached on 25 July 2008 in Brussels a political agreement on two issues, one related to Eurojust and the other to the European Judicial Network in criminal matters. These two texts should help to improve the efficiency of these instruments in the fight against organised crime within the European Union. They also continued their work in the field of family law with a view to finding a political solution concerning the rules applicable to divorce in order to provide a concrete answer to a problem encountered by an increasing number of European citizens. As divergences remain between Member States, the opportunity of enhanced cooperation between Member States came up again in the debate. Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, told journalists that the Commission would only be in a position to start the possible enhanced cooperation once it has been legally and formally requested to do so by the necessary number of Member States.
