cooperation; extradition; assistance; recognition of decisions


In the current development of contemporary society, international collaboration in various fields between sovereign and equal rights states becomes an indisputable reality, imposed by objective needs.

The principle of cooperation is today unanimously accepted in relations between states, contributing to mutual knowledge between nations, to ensuring progress and development, to consolidating a lasting peace and achieving legal harmonization.

Along with the expansion of the legal foundation on the basis of which cooperation in the field of international legal assistance is carried out, the spectrum and volume of assistance that can be claimed to be provided has inevitably been broadened. In addition, the possibilities for international cooperation in the field of international legal assistance have diversified: new initiatives have appeared to coordinate cross-border issues at the European level, and the community building has been enriched with new institutions such as, for example, Eurojust, which contributes to the improvement of cooperation between the competent authorities of the member states, in particular by facilitating the examination of requests for mutual legal assistance at the European level and of extradition requests.
