Denmark-Europol: Parliament passes first step towards the establishment of a cooperation agreement

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 febbraio 2017

europolDenmark should be added to the list of countries with which Europol can conclude operational cooperation agreements, the European Parliament recommended on Tuesday. However, MEPs also call on Council to set a sunset clause on a future agreement.Parliament passed the draft report by Agustín Díaz de Mera García Consuegra (EPP, ES) by 632 votes to 10, with 51 abstentions.”It is vital to keep Denmark in Europol for the security of all Europeans, nor will the Danish people be completely secure without Europol”, said Agustín Díaz de Mera García Consuegra. Adding Denmark to the list of countries with which Europol can conclude cooperation agreements (Decision 2009/935/JHA) constitutes a first step towards setting up an operational cooperation agreement between Denmark and Europol so as to minimise the negative impact of Denmark’s departure from Europol on 1 May 2017, following the Danish referendum on 3 December 2015.However, MEPs also call on the Council to provide “for an expiry date of five years after the date of entry into force” of the agreement.
Including a sunset clause in the agreement should “ensure its transitional nature with a view to full membership or the conclusion of an international agreement in accordance with Article 2018 TFEU” MEPs add.
When Denmark has been added to the list of countries with which Europol can conclude cooperation agreements, Council will need to consult Parliament on establishing the concrete cooperation agreement between Europol and Denmark. Parliament has no formal say on adding Denmark to the list and establishing a cooperation agreement, but it needs to be consulted on both issues before an agreement can be concluded.
