100 Action Days Coordinated by Eurojust
At the end of November, Eurojust had coordinated its 100th action days since 2011. The 100 action days resulted in 3355 searches; the seizure of more than €210 million in cash, luxury cars and jewellery; and halted criminal activities worth nearly €2 billion.
During the action days, national authorities are able to use a purpose-built coordination centre at Eurojust. There they have access to dedicated and secure lines of communication enabling them to simultaneously conduct arrests, searches, interviews of suspects and witnesses, seizures of evidence, and the freezing of assets in real-time across several countries.
Since the first action days held upon the initiative of the French Desk at Eurojust in 2011 and concerning the smuggling of irregular migrants, action days have been held for all sorts of serious crime: cybercrime, terrorism, environmental crime, THB, financial fraud, weapons trafficking, drug trafficking, and financial crime. The latter was the subject of the 100th coordination centre, unravelling massive trans-European pay TV fraud.
