|Green Paper on obtaining evidence in criminal matters from one Member State to another and securing its admissibility|
|Freedom, Justice and Security|
|All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation.|
|Period of consultation|
|From 11.11.2009 to 22.01.2010|
|Objective of the consultation|
A number of instruments are already in force, providing for mechanisms for a Member State to seek the collection of admissible evidence in criminal matters in a cross-border context.
Closer cooperation in this field is key to the effectiveness of criminal investigations and proceedings in the EU, and the Commission therefore intends to take further action to promote such cooperation. The objective of the Green Paper is to consult Member States and all concerned stakeholders on a number of issues that are relevant in that respect.
