A note sent to COREPER on 16 December explains the purpose of the Regulation:
"The proposal seeks to strengthen Eurojust’s ability to more fully perform its role, as provided for in Regulation (EU) 2018/1727, of supporting and strengthening coordination and cooperation between national investigating and prosecuting authorities in relation to serious crime, in particular terrorist offences, by:
(a) enabling Eurojust to identify links between parallel cross-border investigations and prosecutions regarding terrorist offences more efficiently and to proactively provide feedback on these links to Member States;
(b) enabling the establishment of a modernised case management system;
(c) providing for a secure digital communication channel between Member States and Eurojust;
(d) facilitating cooperation with third countries."
The provisional text was sent to COREPER on the same day, for approval at the COREPER meeting on 19 December (pdf).
