On 12-13 May, ERA organised a training seminar on Conflicts of Jurisdiction in Cross-Border Criminal Proceedings. The event took place in Trier, Germany, and covered some of the currently most topical issues, such as pros and cons of the EU’s legal framework for conflicts of jurisdiction, special regulations for extradition, the European Arrest Warrant and the European Investigation Order, as well as transfer of criminal proceedings and identifying parallel investigations within the EU.
Among esteemed speakers were Katalin Ligeti and John Vervaele, Project Reporters of the ELI project on “Prevention and Settlement of Conflicts of Exercise of Jurisdiction in Criminal Law”. ERA’s event was a perfect opportunity to present the recent developments in this ELI project and to further deliberate on the principle of ne bis in idem in the context of the EU acquis and the case-law of the CJEU.
Conference programme and all other information are available on the ERA website.
