The Minister of the Interior visited Europol Headquarters in The Hague (Netherlands), with a delegation composed of the Director of Public Security, Richard Marangoni, and the Commissioners.

This visit helped to consolidate and deepen the links established on the basis of a first agreement signed in 2011. Since then, Europol has considerably developed its strategic and operational capabilities as well as its coordination.

Europol provides support for nearly 40,000 investigations annually. The visit also allowed for discussions with the operational managers of the European Counter Terrorism Centre (ECTC) and Financial Intelligence Units (FIU), in charge of the fight against terrorism and money laundering.

Prospects for cooperation in the field of cybercrime were also discussed in order to strengthen the investigative capacity of the Monaco police service in the face of this type of crime.
