Abstract: 
        On April 23, 2024, the European Parliament adopted a legislative resolution on the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the transfer of proceedings in criminal matters.  With the innovative solutions adopted in other instruments, such as European Arrest Warrant, MLAT (1996), prisoner transfer, confiscation, the gathering of evidence through a European Investigation Order, and the carrying out of criminal investigations through a Joint Investigation Team, the European Union has revolutionized the system of international cooperation in criminal matters.
