"Madam President, I would like to begin by thanking and congratulating my friend, Mrs Weber, on the fine work she has accomplished in this report. In contrast, the shadow rapporteur from my group, Mrs Macovei, believes that, in the interests of reducing bureaucracy, Eurojust should only be informed in those cases where it has not been possible to reach an agreement between the courts involved. I believe that Mrs Macovei is right. Moving on to other issues, Mrs Weber also urges the Commission to put forward as soon as possible an additional proposal, complementing the framework decision, to establish rules for the resolution of ‘negative’ conflicts of jurisdiction. Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, judicial cooperation is to become part of the legislative areas of responsibility of the European Parliament in the very near future. The Irish people has now given its view through a referendum and, in my view, its decision has been positive and correct. European citizens hope that the area of freedom, security and justice will be a reality in which their procedural rights are equally respected and guaranteed, regardless of the part of Community territory in which they find themselves. Our duty is therefore to ensure that these procedural guarantees are abided by in all Member States. When there is a ‘positive’ conflict of jurisdiction between different Member States, this must be resolved as swiftly as possible, in order to protect citizens and avoid any risk of infringing the legal principle of In order to do this, it is crucial for the judicial bodies involved in the conflict of jurisdictions to cooperate and communicate. The report also contains a debate on what role Eurojust has and what role it should have when such conflicts of jurisdiction arise. The rapporteur argues that Eurojust should be informed of any conflict that arises, even where it has been resolved bilaterally between the judicial bodies involved."@en1
