Judicial cooperation

General description of the national system for international judicial cooperation in criminal matters:


All requests for mutual assistance to Ireland, unless they are appropriate to police or customs channels, should be sent to:

The Central Authority for Mutual Assistance
Department of Justice, Equality and Law Refrom
51 St. Stephen's Green
Dublin 2
Ireland

EMAIL MUTUAL@JUSTICE.IE

The Central Authority for Mutual Assistance should NOT be referred to as a "judicial authority" in requests for mutual assistance to Ireland.

Where requests cover both legal assistance and co-operation of a police to police nature, they should be sent to the Central Authority for Mutual Assistance, which will co-ordinate the execution of the requests.

Requesting authorities should note that neither the Courts nor the Director of Public Prosecutions have any investigative functions or directly execute requests. Requests should, therefore, always be sent to the Central Authority for Mutual Assistance (unless appropriate to police or customs channels) as indicated above.

Requests should be in writing and by way of original documents. In cases of urgency, advance email or faxed copies of requests may be accepted with an undertaking that the original request will be forwarded without delay. All requests should be in either Irish or English. In cases where requests are translated to Irish or English from the language of the requesting authority, a certificate to that effect that the request furnished in the Iirish/English lanuguage is a complete and accurate translation of the request should be furnished.

European Arrest Warrants should always be transmitted to the:

 
Central Authority for the European Arrest Warrant,
Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform,
51 St Stephens Green Dublin 2
Ireland
EMAIL WARRANTSMAIL@JUSTICE.IE


European Arrest Warrants may be transmitted to the Central Authority for the European Arrest Warrant by hand, by post or by fax. A European Arrest Warrant must be in writing in

either the Irish or English language or, where it is in another language, must be accompanied by a translation in either Irish or English.

Requests to Ireland to consent to the execution in Ireland of a sentence imposed in a sentencing country, in accordance with Article 2 of the 1997 Additional Protocol to the Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons or in accordance with Chapter 5 of Title III of the Convention implementing the Schengen Agreement should also be sent to the Central Authority for the European Arrest Warrant at the above address.
