Recently, the EURIEC’s parent organisation, RIEC Limburg, was mentioned in a popular Dutch police series. During a suspenseful scene, the image might arise that the RIEC has an active role in police actions. This is true neither of the EURIEC nor the RIEC. Although our work appears less exciting and often takes place behind the scenes, it is nevertheless an essential part of the fight against organised crime — because by exchanging information, in which the EURIEC advises, our countries jointly call a halt to criminals abusing borders.
We also do this by learning from each other. Last period, for example, we learned from colleagues from North Rhine-Westphalia, and gave a briefing for the European Commission. And we are happy to tell you more about developments concerning the UBO-register and DIOB, the Belgian Administrative Enforcement Act. Happy reading!
