Security Union: New measures to deny terrorists and criminals the means and space to act
The European Commission is taking additional steps to further curtail the space in which terrorists and criminals operate – denying them the means needed to plan, finance and carry out crimes.
Six months after the anti-terrorism package of October 2017, the Commission is proposing measures to:
- bolster the security of identity cards and reduce document fraud;
- provide law enforcement and judicial authorities with access to electronic evidence and financial information;
- further, restrict terrorists' access to explosives precursors;
- and strengthen controls on the import and export of firearms.
