Background

On Friday, justice ministers are expected to agree a general approach on three legislative
proposals:
- a directive establishing minimum rules for criminal sanctions for the most serious market abuse offences, namely insider dealing and market manipulation ("market abuse directive") (16000/11);
- a directive on the freezing and confiscation of proceeds of crime in the EU (7641/12). The proposal aims to make it easier for national authorities to confiscate and recover the profits that criminals make from cross-border and organised crime;
- a regulation on mutual recognition of protection measures in civil matters upon request of the person at risk (10613/11), aimed at strengthening the rights of victims. 
Furthermore, the Council debates two proposed regulations on the jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions as regards matrimonial property regimes, on the one hand (8160/11), and the property consequences of registered partnerships, on the other (8163/11). The aim is to agree political guidelines on certain issues relating to those proposals.
Ministers also debate on the proposal to create a European account preservation order to facilitate cross-border debt recovery in civil and commercial matters (13260/11). Here too, the Council will aim to establish a number of guidelines for the continuation of work.
The Council takes note of the state of play on a proposed directive on the protection of the EU's financial interests by criminal law (12683/12). The goal is to deter fraudsters, improve the prosecution and sanctioning of crimes against the EU budget, and facilitate the recovery of misused EU funds. Ministers also hold a debate on the proposed revision of the 1995 regulation on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (General Data Protection regulation) (5853/12). In addition, they take stock of progress made on the linked proposal for a directive on the protection of individuals when authorities process personal data in dealing with criminal offences (5833/12). Moreover, the Council is due to adopt the new EU drugs strategy for the years 2013-2020.  Finally, the Council takes note of the state of play on the accession of the EU to the European Human Rights Convention and review the work achieved during the second semester of 2012 in the area of e-justice. Important items to be adopted without discussion (A items) include the adoption of the proposal for a regulation on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (Recast) (Brussels I).
