In 2012, Eurojust will celebrate its tenth anniversary. To mark this milestone, Eurojust, in conjunction with the Danish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, has invited Ministers of Justice and Home and Affairs and the Prosecutors General of the Member States, and the Member States` Ambassadors to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, as well as high representatives of the Parliament, the Council and the Commission of the European Union to the celebration in the Hague on 27 and 28 February 2012.

The celebration will commence on Monday 27 February 2012 at the Nieuwe Kerk, Spui 175, 2511 BM The Hague, with a welcome evening dedicated to the history and development of Eurojust.

On 28 February 2012 – ten years to the day since Eurojust was created – the official ceremony will take place at the Ridderzaal, Grafelijk Zalencomplex, Binnenhof nr. 11 in The Hague.

The ceremony will be followed by an informal meeting of the Ministers. Under the headline, “Eurojust: Strengthening the judicial cooperation in the European Union” the Ministers will take the opportunity to discuss main achievements and further development of Eurojust.

Background
Eurojust is an EU agency located in The Hague in Holland. Eurojust goals are to increase and improve coordination between EU legal authorities in investigations and prosecutions in cases of serious transnational crime. Since its establishment in 2002, Eurojust has been involved in a considerable number of cases concerning terrorism, human trafficking, drug trafficking and money laundering.

The focal point of Eurojust's work is the 27 national members, one from each member state, who are associated with Eurojust in accordance with their respective jurisdictions. Members are experienced prosecutors, judges or police officers.
