[Autom. eng. transl.] The contribution is part of a volume (edited by Damato, De Pasquale and Parisi) that raises in a rational way the most significant jurisprudence of the European Union and of the supreme national courts (with particular attention to the Italian ones) organized by themes pertaining to the law procedural and substantive European criminal law. The chapter jointly considers actions to combat fraud against EU financial interests, corruption and money laundering in the assessment that the three pipelines represent the election ground for the proposed directive for the protection of the EU's financial interests, called, when in force, to replace the rules established by the 1995 Convention of the same name. With regard to the fraud sector, consideration is given to the discipline established first of all by the Regulation (EC, Euratom) n. 2988/95 of the Council adopted on the basis of the art. 280 TEC; the Council Resolution (of 6 December 1994) and, at its request, the Convention relating to the protection of the financial interests of the EC (of 26 July 1995); the provisions of Articles 83 and 325, as well as 86, TFEU. It is reported that almost at the same time as the first interventions in the fight against fraud, the EU Council approved a general Convention on the fight against corruption involving the involvement of EU officials or even officials of EU Member States (26 May 1997), followed by the first two common positions in criminal matters n. 97/661 / GAI and n. 97/783 / JHA; from joint action 98/742 / GAI on the punishment of corruption in the private sector, which was later replaced by Framework Decision 2003/568 / GAI; from the Stockholm Program Implementation Action Plan. Finally, cooperation initiatives aimed at combating money laundering are examined: in this sector, Directive 91/308 / EEC on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purpose of money laundering operates in a preventive function. of proceeds of illegal activities; completed by Directive 2001/97 / EC, then repealed by Directive 2005/60 / EC, which in turn was last amended by Directive 2008/20 / EC.
