Webinar: Defence Rights in Evidentiary Procedures Online - Part Two


Evidence forms the basis of a criminal case. But what happens when it is gathered illegally or improperly? What remedies are in place in the EU and how effective are they?

The DREP project explored whether existing rules and practice on the admissibility of evidence are sufficient to address violations of procedural rights in evidence-gathering procedures, offer meaningful remedies, and prevent future violations.

During this online event, we present the DREP Regional Report, discuss the current state of play and explore possible solutions to improve access to effective remedy in evidentiary proceedings.

Panel 2 – Regional importance and possible solutions
The second panel will explore whether EU law and guidance on effective remedies for violations of defence rights are sufficient. Panellists will discuss whether more action is needed and what steps can be taken on the EU level.
