About the Speaker:
Aled Williams was elected President of Eurojust in February 2010. He joined Eurojust in July 2006 and was appointed UK National Member in June 2008. He was admitted as a solicitor in 1984 and then worked as a prosecutor with responsibility for serious cases of homicide, fraud and drug trafficking. In 2002 he was appointed the United Kingdom liaison magistrate to Spain. He worked in that role in the Ministry of Justice in Madrid for four years, dealing with mutual legal assistance, extradition and the introduction of European Arrest Warrant procedures.
About the Speech:
In his address to the Institute, Aled Williams, the President of Eurojust, provided an analysis on recent developments and proposed action in the development of the European Investigation Order (EIO), and particularly on current measures to ensure more effective cross-border investigations and prosecutions throughout the EU. He also discussed the possible establishment of a European Public Prosecutor’s Office.
Eurojust is a judicial cooperation body set up by the Council of the European Union in February 2002 to improve the fight against serious crime by facilitating the optimal coordination of action for investigations and prosecutions covering the territory of more than one Member State with full respect for fundamental rights and freedoms.
Eurojust is composed of 27 National Members, one from each EU Member State. These are senior and experienced judges, prosecutors, or police officers of equivalent competence, who together form the College of Eurojust.
This event is part of the Justice Group's ongoing research programme on Justice and Home Affairs Policy.
The IIEA wishes to acknowledge the support it has received from the European Commission throughout 2011.
