Between 8 – 12 July 2019 the Serbian Republic Public Prosecutor Zagorka Dolovac, along with a delegation from the Republic Public Prosecutor’s Office, visited the Federal Prosecutor’s Office of Belgium according to an agreement of cooperation between the two prosecution offices.

During the working visit, meetings were held between Serbian Republic Public Prosecutor Zagorka Dolovac and the Federal Prosecutor of Belgium Frederick Van Leuve, along with other officials responsible for international cooperation and involved in the fight against organised crime. Mr. Van Leuve voiced his support of the steps his counterparts have taken towards being integrated into the European institutions for judicial cooperation. Meetings with the Chief Prosecutor of the Antwerp region in Belgium provided interesting insight into the field of narcotic drug smuggling, as the region holds one of the largest ports in Europe.

Mr. Dolovac also attended a working meeting with the Head of the Unit for the Accession of Serbia to the EU within the Directorate-General for Enlargement Ms. Jatarina Vendt, and representatives of the Directorate-General for Justice of the European Commission. These meetings emphasized the significance of activities connecting Serbian Public Prosecution Offices and the work of judicial cooperation networks of the EU, such as EUROJUST and EJN.
