ADOPTION OF 5 CRIMINAL JUSTICE DECISIONS

At the end of 2008, the Council definitively adopted 5 important Framework Decisions, all long-standing proposals, and some of which
have been in the works for several years:

  • on combating racism and xenophobia;
  • on the protection of personal data processed in the framework of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters;
  • on mutual recognition in probation matters;
  • amending the definition of terrorism to include 3 new offences; and
  • on mutual recognition of judgments in criminal matters.


Member States have 2 or 3 years, as defined in the specific FD, to comply.
