Swiss Europol agreement

18 August 2004

The European Union (EU) Council of Ministers has authorised Europol, the continent-wide intelligence agency, to strike a deal with Switzerland, which is not a member of the EU, on swapping information, including personal data, on illegal trafficking in nuclear and radioactive substances.
Europol and Swiss law enforcement units would swap data on many aspects of organised crime, including terrorism. The council said this would “enhance cooperation” and “strategic and operational information” would be exchanged between regular contacts “at all appropriate levels.”
