SETTLEMENT OF CONFLICTS OF EXERCISE OF JURISDICTION IN CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS

The 2009 proposal for a Framework Decision (Procedure reference 2009 0802/CNS) to resolve jurisdictional conflicts in criminal cases, limited in scope to situations where the same person(s) are subject to parallel proceedings in different Member States in respect of the same facts (which might infringe the ne bus in idem principle), looks set to be agreed upon by the EP and the Council in time to allow it to be adopted at the JHA Council meeting on 23 October 2009.
