European information-sharing hold-up

One argument thrown up against those of us who believe in a free market in labour as well as trade across Europe is for habitual offenders in one country to move across borders and repeat offend without the police being aware of their presence. The obvious answer is for enforcement agencies throughout the EU to share information, and, ideally, for each to have ready access to a comprehensive database.

It seems, from this posting by Sarah Ludford MEP, that Indian-scale bureaucracy  is holding up the latter.
