The information requested is not held centrally. However, UK competent authorities sought assistance from Eurojust in 644 criminal cases between 2001 and 2011. The majority of these cases involved conduct in the UK, although some involved conduct in other member states where the UK had a direct interest either in the suspect or the impact of the activity. The UK national desk has also dealt with 1,344 requests opened by other member states. A proportion of those cases will also have involved criminality in the UK.
