Croatia: Procedural Rights Observed by the Camera
Audiovisual recording of interrogations in the EU
This country report is based on a research carried out in Hungary in the framework of an empirical research project conducted in five European Union (EU) countries.
This international project “Procedural rights observed by the camera – Audiovisual recording of interrogations in the EU (ProCam)”, supported by the European Commission, aims at mapping the link between audiovisual recording of interrogations and the enforcement of the rights of defendants, with special regard to the rights of vulnerable defendants and the rights enshrined in Directive 2013/48/EU on access to a lawyer1 (hereinafter: Access to a Lawyer Directive), along with an EU-wide identification of good practice of recording interrogations of vulnerable persons and understanding concerns about audiovisual recording of interrogations.
The research in the respective countries was conducted by local project partners, with the co- ordination of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee. The project included an analysis of the legal framework and the statistical data, and an empirical research.
