At the meeting with President of the Judicial Cooperation Unit of the European Union Eurojust Michèle Coninsx, Chairman of the Constitutional Committee of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Kalle Laanet emphasised that ensuring the security of Europe and fighting against crime requires swift cooperation between people.
“Ensuring the security of Europe requires swift cooperation between the people working in different countries and different agencies, and considering the new security risks that have emerged during recent years, the importance of cooperation is ever growing,” Kalle Laanet said. “The smoother and quicker the people of different agencies cooperate and exchange information, the more successful we are in ensuring security and fighting against international crime.”
The President of Eurojust Michèle Coninsx is on a three-day visit to Estonia. During the visit, she has meetings with Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas, Minister of Justice Urmas Reinsalu, Prosecutor General Lavly Perling and Director General of the Estonian Internal Security Service Arnold Sinisalu.
