LAW ENFORCEMENT ACCESS TO FINANCIAL INFORMATION: EU COUNCIL ADOPTS NEGOTIATING POSITION

A news release from the EU on 21st November said that EU ambassadors had agreed the EU Council’s negotiating position on a Directive laying down the rules facilitating the use of financial and other information for the prevention, detection, investigation or prosecution of certain criminal offences – improving access to financial information by FIU and law enforcement authorities in order to strengthen the fight against terrorism and serious crime.  On the basis of this mandate, the Council Presidency will start negotiations with the European Parliament once the latter has adopted its position.
