Organizational Structure

SEEPAG organisational structure reflects the fact that SEEPAG is a practical mechanism for judicial co-operation in Southeast Europe.

The principle that inspires it is quite simple: to identify and promote contact points in every state participating in the network, with the purpose of creating a group of experts to ensure the proper execution of mutual legal assistance, and support to SELEC.

SEEPAG is a non-centralized, dynamic structure, with horizontal character and possessing only minimal organizational structure necessary for its functioning (the Secretariat). Therefore, flexibility is its main character.

SEEPAG is composed of Prosecutorial Contact Points (PFP) of every state participating in SEEPAG.

PFPs are designated by each state participating in the SEEPAG according to their constitutional rules, legal traditions and internal structures, providing effective coverage for all forms of serious crimes throughout the country

PFP's are "active intermediaries", with the task of facilitating judicial cooperation between states participating in the SEEPAG, as well as providing assistance to the SELEC operations.

Specific functions of the PFP's elaborated in the basic SEEPAG documents, and aimed to ensure efficient fulfillment of the SEEPAG role, are:

  • Receiving crime reports and other documents, as well as answering and disseminating such documents as needed.
  • Case monitoring in the prosecutor’s office / PFP.
  • Consulting in pre-trial, pre-criminal, and criminal proceedings.
  • Providing remedies and suggestions.
  • Communicating with the National Bureau of Interpol, Europol, National Focal Points ( SELEC ).
