National Meeting of the French EJN-contact points; Paris, France (21 June 2019)

Thanks to the funding by the EJN Grant, a national meeting of the French EJN-contact points was organized in Paris on June 21, 2019.

French national and regional contact points were invited, but also the EJN secretariat, French liaison magistrates (in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Romania, Germany) and their counterparts, as well as the French desk from Eurojust.

Fruitful discussions took place on :
-    the role of the various actors in the judicial cooperation process (EJN contact points, Eurojust, Liaison magistrates),
-    the implementation by the French judicial authorities of EU cooperation instruments,
-    the topical issues in this field (particularly the CJEU judgments on the concept of an ‘issuing judicial authority’ and the ninth round of mutual evaluations devoted to mutual recognition of judgments and judicial decisions). 

The participants also attended three workshops in order to share good practices related to mutual recognition instruments, European arrest warrant and extradition.
