A webinar presented by the IBA Anti-Corruption, Business Crime and Criminal Law Committees

In June 2021, the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) launched its operations. Are reports piling up? Have investigations of cases commenced? It seems a good moment to review the institution. During this webinar, the panel will comment on how the new EPPO is intending to have an impact on the fight against corruption in the European Union.

It will be an opportunity to:

• Assess the legislation regarding the EPPO and the current EU legislative landscape regarding corruption;

• Highlight any criticalities of the current system;

• Exchange views on how the EPPO may effectively fight corruption and what each EU Member State should do in order to contribute to the effectiveness of the EPPO’s tasks and activities, and

• Assess whether and how the EPPO may enhance the opportunities for negotiated settlements, particularly in cross-border cases.
