Europol Co-Operates With 18 Non-EU States

Dave’s scaremongering got even sillier yesterday when he claimed Brexit would mean Britain loses intel on “terrorists running around Europe”. Last night the director of Europol, Rob Wainwright, joined in, claiming Britain would be “much less effective” at fighting terrorism if we left the EU. Really?

Europol says on its website that

“because organised crime does not stop at international borders, it is also essential to have cooperation initiatives with non-EU countries”

16 years ago, the EU authorised the director of Europol to enter into negotiations on cooperation agreements with non-EU states. Today, Europol has operational agreements with 14 non-EU countries:

Albania, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Macedonia, Iceland, Moldova, Montenegro, 
Norway, Republic of Serbia, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Monaco and the United States.

It even has strategic agreements in place with Bosnia & Herzegovina, Russian Federation, Turkey and Ukraine.

Why would Europol share information on terrorists with these non-EU countries and not Brexit Britain?
