This agreement, which regulates and allows mutual cooperation, will make possible, among other things, the formation of joint investigative teams in the fight against corruption, organised and cross-border crime.
One of the basic roles of the European Public Prosecutor (EPPO) is the protection of the EU financial system, as well as EU funds, whose beneficiary is, among others, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The signing of the agreement is an important step in the EU integration process of our country and is the result of intensive work by the Prosecutor’s Office of BiH in terms of international cooperation and European integration, as well as of its connections with partner European institutions and law enforcement agencies.
