A set of six EU directives guaranteeing procedural rights for people across the EU started to apply on 11 June.
The package involves special safeguards for children in criminal justice proceedings and the right to legal aid if accused. These new rules complement the already existing rules: the right to be presumed innocent, to have a lawyer, right to information and translation.
With these measures, the EU is making sure that its citizens’ fundamental rights of fair and equal treatment are respected in criminal proceedings.
