Appeal to enhance a EU fight against organized crime
In 1996, judges and prosecutors from several European Countries launched the Geneva Appeal. The Appeal denounced the fact that, in the shadows of the construction of Europe, there was another Europe in hiding – made of criminals, corrupt persons and fraudsters who found great chances of impunity in the opacity of economic and financial operations. Against this dark Europe, the Appeal signatories urged to get over the protectionism of national criminal systems and to establish a single European justice area.
In the 16 years which followed important changes occurred within the European Union. Now the single European justice area invoked by the Appeal is not only included in the Treaties, but it is a reality, though in progress.
Still, the dark Europe did not dissolve. On the contrary, it keeps prospering with an increasingly organised crime, accumulating and laundering profits on a global scale. The dark Europe has just became more insidious, stealing enormous assets, impoverishing and polluting the economy, politics and civil society.
