23/9/2022 - The 22nd Annual Meeting of the German EJN-contact points (and 10th Annual Berlin Regional EJN-Meeting) in Berlin on September 13, 2022 dealt with the problems about the extending authorisation of extradition in the different Member States. Thanks to the funding by the EJN Secretariat we were able to invite guests from Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, Poland, Slovenia and Switzerland, who presented us numerous interesting individual cases and sensitised our awareness of the particular national needs regarding the information to approve an extending authorisation of extradition.

Besides, we received equivalent reports form the French liaison officer in Berlin and our German counterpart in Paris, with whom the German EJN-contact points are currently cultivating an extreme close and effective cooperation. In addition a delegated prosecutor of the German EPPO gave a short overview of the work of the new European agency and its national centers in Germany. Furthermore we were delighted to welcome the new chair of the German desk at EUROJUST, Mr. MacLean. Due to a very short-term flight cancellation Mr. Ola Löfgren from the EJN Secretariat unfortunately could not participate in the meeting to inform us about the plans of the Secretariat in the future. Since Mr. Löfgren is leaving the EJN Secretariat at the end of the year, we send him all best wishes for the future this way.
