USE OF FINANCIAL DATA FOR PREVENTING AND COMBATING SERIOUS CRIME IN THE EU

On 17th January, the EU Parliament Research Service published a briefing paper about a proposed EU Directive laying down rules facilitating the use of financial and other information for the prevention, detection, investigation or prosecution of certain criminal offences and repealing Council Decision 2000/642/JHA.   It is intended to facilitate law enforcement authorities’ access to and use of financial information held in other jurisdictions within the EU for investigations related to terrorism and other serious crime.  The Directive also aims to strengthen domestic and cross-border exchange of information between EU Member States’ competent authorities, including law enforcement authorities and FIU, as well as with Europol.
