09/05/2016

The following report has been prepared by the CCBE and the European Lawyers Foundation.  The report is an assessment by defence practitioners of the implementation of the following three directives:

  • Directive 2010/64 on the right to interpretation and translation
  • Directive 2012/13 on the right to information
  • Directive 2013/48 on the right of access to a lawyer.

The project lasted from 15 April 2015 to 14 April 2016. The report itself is 80 pages long and the annexes (which contain the original responses to the questionnaires) are a further 270 pages.


The report contains an analysis of the Directives and identifies good practices and recommendations (see pages 6-9 for the recommendations).
