In a humiliating snub for eurocrats the Netherlands, Sweden, Poland, Hungary and Malta all declared their intention to opt out of the contentious scheme which will hand Brussels sweeping new powers over the continent’s legal system.

Defiant Swedish politicians told stunned officials “we don’t need your help” and Holland raised concerns over sovereingty as yet another EU initiative looked set to descend into bickering and farce.

Malta and Hungary objected to the extra power the initiative would hand to Brussels over member states’ tax affairs, whilst Poland said it believed the plan could ultimately lead to the creation of an EU superstate.

Earlier today bigwigs vowed to railroad through controversial plans to set up an EU-wide prosecutor’s office despite fierce opposition from some member states.

A majority of European justice ministers called for “enhanced cooperation” between countries on cross-border crime, but critics argue the move is an unacceptable encroachment on sovereignty.

Plans for a European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) have been in the pipeline for a decade, but have proved highly contentious amongst member states.
