Israel To Sign Intelligence-Sharing Pact With Europol Agency


Israel is at the beginning stages of signing a joint-agreement between the Israeli police and Europol, the law enforcement agency of the European Union, Walla Hebrew media outlet reported on Sunday.

The agreement would allow for intelligence sharing between Israeli security forces and the EU but stipulates that Europol would not use information that was collected beyond the Green Line, in accordance with the EU’s policy not to recognize any territory taken by Israel in 1967.

European sources told Walla that the wording of the agreement has not yet been finalized because the European Union is waiting for Israelis to approve a final draft that was sent to Jerusalem some six months ago.

Europol coordinates information sharing and law enforcement between 28 European countries in order to combat terror and crime. Read more at i24NEWS.
