Project description

Requests for assistance in criminal matters made between police authorities, especially between neighbouring countries, are commonplace considering the growing number of criminal offences with a transnational element. When these requests are not answered to or executed in a timely or correct manner, valuable time and energy can be lost. It is crucial to investigated if indeed there are problems in the execution of such requests between Belgium and the Netherlands. With this knowledge, fitting solutions can be found for possible obstacles.
