New Liaison Prosecutor for Norway
At the beginning of September 2023, Mr Rudolf Christoffersen took up his duties as liaison prosecutor for Norway at Eurojust. During his career, Mr Christoffersen held positions as public prosecutor in Bergen, as deputy to the Norwegian Liaison Prosecutor at Eurojust, and as a member of the Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) with the Council of Europe. Mr Christoffersen succeeds Christian Jordet who held this position since August 2020. Norway has seconded liaison prosecutors to Eurojust since 2005 when the cooperation agreement between Norway and Eurojust came into force. Norway was the first third country that assigned a prosecutor to Eurojust.
Liaison Prosecutors are posted at Eurojust based on the international agreement with the respective non-EU country. The mandate and duration of each posting are determined by the national authorities of the respective country. Liaison Prosecutors have access to Eurojust’s operational tools and facilities, including the use of office space and secure telecommunications services.
