Fiches Belges

The Fiches Belges is a tool that provides practical information on specific sets of measures that are covered by judicial cooperation in criminal matters.

The Fiches Belges helps you to:

  • check whether a measure is applicable in a certain country
  • check which language you must use in your request for cooperation
  • generally see which information you must include in your request.
  • compare measures between 2 countries

The measures are divided into 10 groups:

  • Tracing & interception of (tele)communications
  • Agents & informers – Infiltration
  • Examination, body search & expert evaluation
  • Documents – Obtaining
  • Assets – Sequestration, confiscation & restitution
  • Places – Visit & search
  • Witnesses, victims, suspects – Summoning & hearing
  • Cross-border operations
  • Measures specific to Mutual Recognition Instruments
  • Transfer of proceedings

The tool is available here (note: you will leave the e-Justice Portal).
