Louise quoted on various issues in the article including:
It's good that we have a deal. But it's never going to be as close as it was while the UK was a member of the EU, with cooperation and trust built up over a number of years."
Although there will be continued sharing of data, it won't be the EU's main information sharing mechanism, so there will be a time lag when the UK and the EU want to exchange data."
There will still be willingness to cooperate and share, but it won't be access to the EU's primary security information system that they use day in and day out."
Obviously this is less of an immediate problem with the travel restrictions related to COVID-19. However longer term, these constraints may change the dynamic for when an investigator conducts a face to face meeting rather than a remote interview and the need to involve a local legal team as part of the wider investigation team. Failure to comply with the rules could taint the investigation."
