(Luxembourg, 23 January 2024) -  A delegation from the Polish Ministry of Justice is visiting the Central Office of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office in Luxembourg today and tomorrow to discuss Poland's future participation in the EPPO and to gain legal, operational and administrative insights into our work and organisation.

Today, the Polish delegation – composed of Secretary of State in the Ministry of Justice Arkadiusz Myrcha, Acting National Prosecutor Jacek Bilewicz, Director of Legislative Department of Criminal Law in the Ministry of Justice Michał Hara and Chief Specialist in Legislative Department of Criminal Law Daniel Łoniewski – met with European Chief Prosecutor Laura Kӧvesi, Deputy European Chief Prosecutors, European prosecutors, heads of Legal service and Operations unit. The meeting with the Polish delegation continued at a technical level with a series of discussions on the concrete and key aspects of implementing the EPPO in a participating Member State.

Poland could soon become the 23rd participating EU Member State, marking a new milestone in the establishment of the EPPO. The request to join was made by Poland's Minister of Justice Adam Bodnar on 5 January 2024. The European Commission now has four months to assess this request. 

The European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) is the independent public prosecution office of the European Union. It is responsible for investigating, prosecuting and bringing to judgment crimes against the financial interests of the EU.
