By Diyar Guldogan

ANKARA (AA) - The European Council on Monday agreed to the appointment of Laura Codruta Kovesi to be the first European chief prosecutor.

"Ms Kövesi, as the first ever incumbent of this post, will have the task of setting up the EPPO [European Public Prosecutor's Office] from scratch," said a statement by the Council.

"Her job over the 7 years of her mandate will in particular consist in building the administrative and operational structure of the office and establishing good working relations with national judiciary authorities," it added.

The appointment must also be confirmed by the European Parliament.

The EPPO will be an independent and decentralized prosecution office of the block, with the competence to investigate, prosecute and bring to judgment crimes against the EU budget.

Its headquarter will be in Luxembourg and is expected to start its operation in November 2020.
