Invitation from the Chairs
Meeting of the Joint Parliamentary Scrutiny Group on Europol (JPSG)
24 - 25 September, European Parliament, Brussels
Vienna, 30 July 2018
Dear Chair, dear Colleague,
We are pleased to invite you to the Third Meeting of the Joint Parliamentary Scrutiny Group on Europol on 24 and 25 September 2018 at the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels.
The meeting will tackle a number of concrete issues directly following from Article 51 of Regulation EU(2016)0794 (Europol Regulation) as well as a thematic debate on 'Europol's contribution to the fight against financial crime, asset recovery and money laundering'.
In view of the obligation, pursuant to Article 51 paragraph 2 point c) of the Europol Regulation, to consult the Joint Parliamentary Scrutiny Group in relation to Europol’s multiannual programming, we included this point in the draft agenda and enclose the document issued by Europol on 30 January 2018 that was already discussed at the Second JPSG Meeting on 18-19 March 2018 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Your JPSG members are invited to send written comments on the Europol Multiannual Programming ahead of the meeting, where a second exchange of views on this matter is foreseen. The comments should be drafted in English or French and be addressed to the JPSG Secretariat1 by 29 August 2018.
