Council of the EU: Discussion paper on aspects of terrorism


In a document recently circulated to member state delegations in the Council, the German Presidency presents the "state of play" on five issues relating to terrorism: the use of the European Arrest Warrant; support for victims of terrorism; the possibility of the cumulative prosecution of foreign terrorist fighters; digitalisation (including cross-border access to e-evidence and the digitalisation of criminal justice cooperation); and online hate speech (covering the current EU legal framework and "possible next steps").
