E-Guide on EPPO Proceedings for Defence Practitioners
The Academy for European Law (ERA), together with the European Criminal Bar Association (ECBA) developed an online guideline on EPPO proceedings with special focus on the defence perspective. The guideline aims at giving a short and precise overview of the most important issues in EPPO proceedings for defence practitioners. Next to a general overview of the EPPO, the guideline sets out defence rights in EPPO proceedings, looks at the admissibility of evidence and dismissal of cases, and explains proceedings for judicial review of EPPO cases.
It has been developed within the framework of the EU-funded project “Training on the EPPO – Working with the EPPO at decentralised level”, which has compiled training materials/background information and carried out training seminars for investigators, prosecutors, judges and defence lawyers.
The guideline for defence practitioners is freely accessible and currently available in English. German and French translations are about to follow.
