Meeting with the European Commissioner



    On 4th March 2003, a delegation of the CESP composed of the President, Rafael GASSÓ, of an Deputy General Secretary, Christian VAN MICHELEN and of the President of the ASFIC/PJ (Portugal), Manuel CARNEIRO, met in Brussels Mr. Antonio VITORINO, European Commissioner.

    The delegation asked the European Commissioner some questions on various subjects which worry the CESP for the future of the European space of Freedom, Security and Justice.

    Mr. VITORINO informed them of his priorities: Europol must become an Agency and should create an European Border Police at medium term.

    The European commissioner and the President of the CESP agreed to co-operate more intensely in the future. From now on, the CESP will form part of the organisations which collaborate with the Commission on these subjects.
