In August 2023, the European Chief Prosecutor, Laura Codruța Kövesi, and the Minister of Justice of the Kingdom of Denmark, Peter Hummelgaard, signed a working arrangement on the cooperation between the EPPO and the Ministry of Justice of the Kingdom of Denmark. The main aim of the arrangement is to establish facilitated cooperation in judicial criminal matters as to the application of the European Arrest Warrant, the gathering of evidence under the relevant European MLA instruments and other forms of judicial cooperation.

Both parties assure that they will support each other in the implementation of their data protection obligations. In addition, the arrangement provides for the exchange of strategic information, the secondment of Danish liaison officers to the EPPO, and EPPO contact points in Denmark. Eventually, the Parties will organise high-level and technical meetings at both operational and administrative levels and cooperate in organising trainings in matters of common interest.

The arrangement with the Danish Ministry of Justice is the second one with a judicial authority in a non-participating EU Member State. In April 2021, a similar working arrangement was concluded with the Prosecutor-General of Hungary (→ eucrim 1/2021, 14).
