The Council of the European Union established Eurojust on 6 March 2002. The organisation was created in order to stimulate and improve coordination between the competent authorities of the Member States in investigations and prosecutions within those States, increasing their effectiveness and enhancing cooperation by facilitating international mutual legal assistance and the implementation of extradition requests.
By achieving these objectives Eurojust will enhance cooperation and coordination between national investigating and prosecuting authorities allowing all law enforcement agencies to act more effectively, both individually and collectively, when dealing with international crime and, more importantly, to bring criminals to justice more quickly.
Eurojust is the first permanent network of judicial authorities to be established anywhere in the world.
