When Andreas Laursen joined the EUPOL COPPS Mission in Ramallah, in early August, as a Prosecution Expert, he was aware that his secondment would also partly be a walk down memory lane.

His mission is to lend a helping hand to the Palestinian counterparts in training, capacity building and cooperation between the police and prosecution in the fight against corruption, serious economic crime and cybercrime. “They (the Palestinian counterparts) are very professional, very committed and knowledgeable within their fields,” he said.

He is working with another 20 Mission Members in the Rule of Law Section, which includes judges, lawyers, magistrates, human rights and legislative experts, to provide technical and legal advice to the Palestinian criminal justice institutions. Mr. Laursen wants to contribute in boosting the capabilities of the counterparts in order to enhance the prosecution system in Palestine, a key component of effective Rule of Law.
