First JIT with the EPPO
In February 2022, Eurojust supported the setting up of a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) with the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) for the first time. As the case concerned cross-border VAT or carousel fraud of over €10 million, it fell under the competence of the newly created EPPO. The JIT was signed by Sweden and the French EDP at the EPPO. Given that Sweden, whose authorities were involved in the investigation, is not participating in the EPPO, the Swedish authorities had asked Eurojust to assist the investigations between them and the EPPO.
