Article 2

1.   The repeal provided for in Article 1 shall not affect the continuation or modification, including the total or partial cancellation, of projects covered by the Programme until their closure, or the financial assistance approved by the Commission on the basis of Decision 2007/124/EC, Euratom, or any other legal acts applying to that financial assistance on 31 December 2013.

2.   When adopting decisions on co-financing under the instrument for financial support for police cooperation, preventing and combating crime, and crisis management as part of the Internal Security Fund, the Commission shall take account of measures adopted on the basis of Decision 2007/124/EC, Euratom before 20 March 2015 which have financial repercussions during the period covered by that co-financing.
